JAN 029 - Laugh At Me, Please! An Intro to Stand Up Comedy

Lower division
Full credit
MTuThF, 12:00 PM - 2:35 PM

Do you like to laugh? Do you enjoy it when other people laugh? And is it extra thrilling when those people are laughing AT YOU? In this course we will learn the fundamentals of stand-up comedy through a variety of mediums: daily readings, daily writing and development of new material both individually and in the community, short videos, guest speakers, and frequent opportunities to stand up with a mic and find the funny. We will explore the history of comedy, learn to dissect and discern comedic approaches, and aim to build a supportive, encouraging, empowering, and inclusive environment. The class will culminate with an open-mic night at the 1927 Pub on the SMC campus where each member will have a 3-minute slot to keep us in stitches.
