Maybe you've always wanted to try stand-up comedy or storytelling. Maybe your friends think you're hilarious and say "You should be a comedian!"

Hundreds of people, of all ages and backgrounds, have come to Stand-Up Studios and enjoyed the amazing experience of getting up on stage and making a REAL audience howl. You can do it too and you will never have more fun in your life! Read our reviews
At Stand-Up Studios you will learn from a comedy professional exactly what's needed to be a good comedian or storyteller and most importantly how to generate original and funny MATERIAL. No other comedy school will teach you that, but it is the foundation of stand-up comedy. Graduates from our stand-up, comedy writing and storytelling workshops have formed an entire comedy community, performing together, starting open mics, getting paid gigs, hitting the road and even pursuing their dreams in Los Angeles! Nearly 100% of our students take the class twice (some 3 or 4 times!) or invest in private coaching.
Sheila is a dynamo. She is a triple threat. An incredible writer, performer and teacher. She is a legend in the business whose far reaching talents have inspired many. I am proud to be one of those lucky folks that she has influenced. And to my delight, she makes me laugh and snort out loud. Eddie Brill - Letterman Show producer/booker/warm-up comic - Creative Director of The Great American Comedy Festival
I've worked with Sheila on several projects and have always looked forward to an exciting collaboration. She has the ability to instantly brainstorm a wealth of novel concepts and ideas. Her process always delivers thoughts that I could never have imagined on my own. These are all delivered from Sheila's own unique perspective. It also helps that her comedy makes me laugh until I cry. John Frink - Executive Producer, The Simpsons, 20th Century Fox
Sheila knows comedy writing. I worked with Sheila early on, and it was immediately clear that she has an amazing talent for finding the comedy in just about anything. She has a unique ability to blend wit, sarcasm, satire and quirky characters to draw the absurdity out of everyday life. She has an amazing gift. I would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to learn the craft of comedy. Don Friesen - Showtime Special "Ask Your Mom."
