~ session is 8 classes 7-9pm Wednesdays Jan. 15 to March 4 + Sat. March 7
Resolve to get funny in the New Year! This is the comedy workshop to take. Kirsten Van Ritzen has taught Stand Up to hundreds of people in Victoria since 2011 – regular people from all walks of life who shared a desire to try Stand Up. Many of her ‘grads’ continue to perform locally, win comedy competitions, appear at comedy festivals and on TV. For some folks it’s a bucket list item and that’s fine too!
Getting laughs is a huge high, but it doesn’t happen by accident. Comedy is a craft that can be learned. Don’t let the fear of bombing stop you from trying. In a few months, you will learn how to write strong material and build the confidence it can take years to gain by doing Open Mics alone.
Your instructor is acclaimed for her unique curriculum and supportive style of teaching. Every class you get the chance to step up to the mic, receive constructive feedback and be given creative assignments for the next week. The group will discuss topics in comedy, and generally laugh a lot. The session wraps up with a Comedy Show on Sat. March 7 Save the date – you will have the option of performing, or sit back and enjoy the show.
No experience is required, just bring a sense of humour, a pen and a large old-school notebook. Make time for 30 to 60 minutes per week of creative homework outside of class. Open to adults 19+ Mature content.
