In Stand Up 201 we will continue to build on the foundations of Stand Up 101. In this class we will work on developing longer storytelling jokes, building complete sets and work to develop stage persona’s for each individual. We will also continue to explore different joke writing tools, editing techniques, and study professional comedians on an in-depth level in order to apply our skills to our own acts.
Prerequisites: Stand Up 101 or approval by the instructor.
