Do you want to:

  • Make people LAUGH?
  • Make people LISTEN?
  • Make PEOPLE Magazine put you on the cover?

Have WE got a class for YOU!

With GOLD Comedy™, you will LEARN from comedy pros AND from PEOPLE LIKE YOU how to:
  • Write, tell, and sell a JOKE 
  • Uncover and unleash your TRUE COMEDY PERSONA
  • Assemble and perform a comedy SET

You will LEAVE WITH:

  • A sense of YOUR unique voice and lens on the world
  • A handy joke-writing toolkit
  • Comedy devices and skills applicable to YOUR ENTIRE LIFE
  • Original jokes that are ALL YOU
  • A presentation that showcases your writing and delivery

This class is especially for

  • Teen girls,
  • AND anyone girl-adjacent
  • and anyone who doesn't hate laughter.

In other words, because we are all VERY MATURE, we welcome comedy nerds of ANY generation, and ANY gender. Whether you want to AMPLIFY YOUR VOICE literally (with a mic!) or figuratively (build your confidence and presence!), this is the place (and safe space) for you!

By the end of this course, you will complete:

  • The writing and refinement of (at least) 5 unique and original jokes
  • A presentation of your original comedy writing and performance for feedback from your friends and revision
  • A final project: A 1-minute performance of original standup-style comedy, recorded on video for optional sharing on YouTube (or the platform of your choice).

We're so glad you're here. Let's DO this!
