6-week Stand-up Comedy Course

The course consists of five weekly three-hour sessions culminating in week six, with a professionally videotaped live performance on the Stress Factory mainstage. Here you can show off your newly-honed comedic skills in front of family and friends. You can also take home a copy of your performance that very night. All instructors are highly regarded professionals with decades of experience to draw from. Because they are all working comedians, on occasion, a regular instructor may be unavailable, but there will always be at least two instructors in each class, with an added guest instructor when that occurs.  

  • Classes meet at the Stress Factory Comedy Club in Bridgeport, CT for six weeks on Tuesdays from 7-10 PM. There are two tuition options for the six-week program and both include performing in the showcase in the final week.

  • $550 with a professionally videotaped six-camera shoot of your showcase.

  • $450 without.

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

  • 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 but we are always available via text and e-mail to answer questions or go over 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.
