Comedy 201 with Wali Collins
F Comedy at WSCC, New York, NY
This Advanced 6-week course will focus on writing techniques, stage presence, and help you continue to hone your unique comedy voice. Every week you will have the opportunity to get onstage and receive feedback in order to level-up your 5-minute set.

The class concludes with a show at West Side Comedy Club, providing students the opportunity to perform onstage in front of a live audience, and receive a professional recording of their set (please note recordings are subject to be used on our social media platforms).

All of our instructors are working comics themselves with credits to their name; they are able to speak directly to the industry as it is today.

This course is intended for comedians who are already working at their craft and have a strong understanding of joke writing and a five minute set they are looking to refine and polish.

Testimonials From Previous Students:

"I took Wali's class around 2014 and have done private coaching with him from 2020 to 2024 and counting, he's one of the winners of many coaches that I tried. Wali is great at joke tuning including burning off fat, recommending better word and sound choices and predicting what the audience will think.
He does it all in his head without reading it. Wali also lives to teach;
he loves it."
 - Gregory Hold - Stand Up CEO

"Wali is one of THE BEST! Super smart joke writer and hilarious performer. 1 looked up to him when I first started standup and I still look up to him (partly cuz I'm real short, but also cuz he's awesome.)"
- Helen Hong (Comedian-Actor)

"Wali is very professional, amazingly funny. And kills it with his simple and clean material!"
- Jami Gong, (Owner of the first full-time comedy club in Asia)
