What's the Time commitment?
The class runs for eight consecutive weeks and meets one day a week for one hour a day. Mentors must be available for all classes (if you have to miss one, that's OK), to build familiarity and trust with the students.
What happens in the class?
Each class will combine a period of group collaboration, during which students will learn something new about stand-up comedy and how to create it, and individual time with mentors who will guide each student through the process of writing jokes and performing them. The program will culminate in a live show, where each student will get to perform their very own stand-up routine in front of an audience of friends, family, classmates, and teachers.
Do I have to fill anything out?
YES! All prospective mentors have to submit a background check and complete a tB Test. The background check will be provided by the executive director and you can complete the TB Test at a local pharmacy or urgent care.
I'm not a comedian! do I need to be funny or know about comedy?
Not at all! All we ask is that you're a committed, engaged, and supportive mentor .
How many students in a class?
It can range from 8-15.
