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 grasp of joke structure and craft
  • A round of feedback from a comedy pro
  • An actual standup comedy set!
  • The tools to help you apply what you've learned to ANY scenario you find yourself in
  • A certificate of completion
  • One less thing on your bucket list!

This class is especially for
  • Teen girls and anyone who identifies with teen girlhood in some way

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, supported by expert feedback
  • 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

And, if you’re looking for ways to apply these skills to different parts of your life, don’t miss our special BONUS TRACKS to help you prep for real-life scenarios (including the sweaty scary ones—think college admissions, job interviews, and more!— in a way that’s appropriate, authentic, and, yes, funny.

We're so glad you're here. Thanks for giving us a try. Let's DO this!
