Comedy 101 with Chanel Ali
F Comedy at WSCC, New York, NY
Are you interested in becoming a comic? Do you need to brush up on your skills? Join us for Comedy 101, where our instructors focus on the basics, and students begin to find their voice and define their style onstage.

Our 6-week course reviews topics including where to find material, joke structures, writing skills & stage presence, the basics of crafting a set, and how to be in the moment. The course concludes with a show at West Side Comedy Club, providing students the opportunity to perform their 5-minute set in front of a live audience. Please note: Final Performances are recorded and subject to be used on our social media platforms. 

Our instructors are all working comics themselves with credits to their name; they can speak directly to the industry as it is today.

At FUNY, The StandUp Comedy School, we are passionate about being funny. 

About Chanel Ali:

Chanel is a standup comedian who blossomed on the Philadelphia circuit before taking her commanding stage presence to NYC. She has two Comedy Central specials, she was a Just For Laughs New Face, and she’s passed at most NYC comedy clubs. 

Testimonials about Chanel’s Teaching:

“As a big fan of standup comedy, I’ve always wanted to try it but felt insecure about my ability to do so, so having Chanel guide me along the way was extremely helpful. She is kind hearted, vulnerable & open about her own experiences, and, most importantly, knows the ins-and-outs of being hilarious in a way that is easy to understand. If you’re looking for a safe space to let yo freak flag fly and explore the hilarious person you think you are, you won’t find a better teacher or class in NYC”

“Taking Chanel’s class was so awesome! I’m a little more experienced in comedy and was still able to get awesome insights from Chanel.”

“Incredible. I’ve wanted to be a comedian forever and now I get to be, thanks to Chanel. I never would’ve worked up the nerve without her guidance. She made my comedy dreams come true and I will never be the same.”
