Join us for a fast-paced intensive crash course in joke writing, led by comedian Woody Battaglia! If you’ve never performed stand-up comedy this is an invitation to start writing your first set of material before you perform at local open mics, and if you are already a performer this is how you can step back from your act and break new ground. In this class you will be taught the basic building blocks of jokes and comedy sets, then be guided through the process of writing five jokes in different styles, each generated through different methods. You will get feedback on each joke you write, and there is no on-stage component to the class.
Class location: This class will take place at Rochester Brainery, 176 Anderson Ave F109, Rochester, NY 14607. Click here for directions.
