Standing up on a comedy stage is exhilarating, that's for sure, but if you don't leave your comedy classes with a funny routine that works for any crowd, then what's the point?
Stand-Up Studios comedy and stand-up classes in DC MD VA will benefit anyone who wants to write funny material about the way they see the world. - we've had comics, podcasters, politicians, vets, journalists, moms, teachers, preachers, Doctors, lawyers, poets, musicians and actors. Each of them successfully performed (and continue to perform in our regular shows) their new act in our weekend comedy showcase-billed NOT as a graduation show for family and friends -but as a live professional comedy show open to the public. They all shined and audience members consistently say it is the best comedy show they have ever seen. That's the level of training you receive here. Comedy classes are fun everywhere, but it's important you learn from someone who has the real world experience and teaching skills.The comedy coach and instructor, Sheila, worked in the entertainment business for years, is a professional comedian and comedy writer who has taught and coached hundreds of people in Los Angeles, the DMV and all over the world. She is also a college faculty instructor who brought her comedy program to the performance art department where she teaches writing, performance and sketch comedy. She also runs comedy camps for the Montgomery County Youth program, The Black Rock Theatre and works in corporate training.
Sheila takes a vested interest in the success of each and every student she teaches and helps them understand the process of creation and performance. That's why so many students continue to take classes and private lessons at Stand-Up Studios even while performing out on the comedy circuit! Join us! You can do it too!
