Stand Up Comedy Class
I HATE BAD STAND UP COMEDY! IT'S PAINFUL TO WATCH AND IT MAKES AUDIENCES CYNICAL  ABOUT ATTENDING FUTURE SHOWS. WHAT IS REALLY FRUSTRATING IS MOST OF THE TIME THE REASON A COMIC IS DOING POORLY IS A PROBLEM WHICH CAN BE FIXED!

SINCE 1999, DEAN LEWIS HAS TAUGHT THE STAND UP WORKSHOP I WISH EXISTED WHEN HE STARTED OUT. AS HE GAINED EXPERIENCE HE LEARNED MANY LESSONS WHICH MADE HIM THINK "IF I HAD KNOWN THIS WHEN I STARTED I COULD HAVE SAVED MYSELF YEARS OF DISCOURAGEMENT!" THIS WORKSHOP WILL NOT HELP YOU SKIP ANY STEPS, BUT IT WILL SHOW THE STEPS YOU SHOULD BE TAKING TO AVOID NEEDLESS FRUSTRATION AND HUMILIATION.

DEAN CANNOT TEACH YOU HOW TO BE TALENTED, BUT CAN SHOW YOU TECHNIQUES WHICH WILL HELP YOU BE THE BEST COMIC POSSIBLE.

THE WORKSHOP TEACHES:
> THE STRUCTURE OF STAND-UP COMEDY
> TECHNIQUES ON HOW TO CREATE AND PERFORM ORIGINAL MATERIAL
> HOW TO CONQUER STAGE FRIGHT
> HOW TO USE YOUR DAILY LIFE TO FIND ABUNDANT CHUNKS OF COMEDY MATERIAL
> THE PSYCHOLOGY OF AUDIENCES AND HOW TO USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE
> THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER MICROPHONE TECHNIQUE
> EFFECTIVE APPROACHES TO HANDLING HECKLERS
> WHAT TO DO IF YOU FORGET YOUR MATERIAL WHILE ONSTAGE
> THE WAY TO STRUCTURE YOUR ACT SO IT HAS A BUILD AND A CLIMAX

THE WORKSHOP IS FOR PEOPLE WITH LITTLE TO NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE WITH STAND-UP COMEDY AS WELL AS FOR WORKING COMICS WHO WANT TO IMPROVE MATERIAL GENERATION AND PERFORMANCES.

AFTER THE 6 INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS, YOU WILL HAVE DEVELOPED A 5 TO 7 MINUTE SET OF ORIGINAL MATERIAL WHICH WILL BE PRESENTED IN FRONT OF A LIVE AUDIENCE. THIS SHOWCASE WILL BE AT THE DALLAS COMEDY HOUSE.

THE FIRST CLASS TEACHES TECHNIQUES FOR CREATING AND PERFORMING ORIGINAL STAND-UP MATERIAL. STUDENTS WILL THEN USE THESE TECHNIQUES TO CREATE MATERIAL. THIS MATERIAL WILL THEN BE BROUGHT INTO EACH SESSION AND "WORKSHOPPED". (THIS MEANS THAT THE MATERIAL IS PERFORMED AND THE INSTRUCTOR GIVES FEEDBACK, SUCH AS TO HOW MAKE IT FUNNIER; MORE ACCESSIBLE TO AN AUDIENCE; TECHNIQUES ON HOW TO BETTER PERFORM THE MATERIAL, ETC.)

THE WORKSHOP IS FUN, BUT THERE IS WORK INVOLVED, SO YOU NEED TO BE READY TO PUT IN SOME TIME OUTSIDE OF THE WORKSHOP!

WHAT YOU RECEIVE:
> 6 WORKSHOPS
> A ONE ON ONE WHERE WE WILL WORK ON YOUR ACT TOGETHER
> THE SHOWCASE AT THE DALLAS COMEDY HOUSE
> PLUS A DCH STUDENT ID WHICH WELCOMES YOU TO SEE FREE SHOWS AT THE DALLAS COMEDY HOUSE.
