Women's Comedy 101 with Kerri Louise
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. In honor of Women's Month this course is reserved for Women-Only.

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.

Please note Comedy 101 is a prerequisite for all of our advanced classes; following the student showcase, teachers will make their recommendations regarding a student’s advancement. At FUNY, The StandUp Comedy School, we are passionate about being funny. 

Testimonials from Kerri's Previous Students:

"Kerri's class was a tour-de-force. Her passion for the work is unmatched. I learned a lot, the class was a real blast. I love the fun, free wheeling, atmosphere Kerri creates."

'Kerri Louise is an asset. I have taken her class twice and have the utmost respect for her professional comedy teaching. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to learn & perform comedy."

"Wonderful class, and I truly feel like my comedy was put in a time machine; where I'm at now would have taken years of solely open mics!"

"Kerri did a great job teaching with her energy, passion, and skill. Just as important, was her creation of a collaborative climate for students to get to know, and support, each other"
