6-week Stand-up Comedy Course

The course consists of five three-hour sessions with three instructors plus a   professionally videotaped live performance on the Stress Factory mainstage in week 6. Here you can show off your newly-honed comedic skills to family and friends. All instructors are highly regarded professionals with decades of experience to draw from. Because they are all working comedians, a regular instructor may occasionally be unavailable, but there will always be at least three instructors in every class.  

  • Classes meet at the Stress Factory Comedy Club in Bridgeport, CT for five weeks on Tuesdays from 7-10 PM. Live taping takes place in the sixth week.

  • If you are easily offended, this may not be the right class for you. Many different topics will come up with differing viewpoints. The goal is to make them funny.

  • Classes will have no more than 12 students. 

  • No make-up classes are offered. If ya' snooze ya' lose, we are always available via text and e-mail to answer questions or review material throughout the six-week program.

  • We occasionally offer partial scholarships at our discretion. Contact us for details if you’re interested.

  • Get noticed by area bookers, with the possibility to perform at other venues.

  • Tuition for the 5-week program is $450 (professionally videotaped shoot of your showcase is an additional $50).

  • Payment in full is preferred but $275 is due by the first day of class.
