June 1st, 2021 – San Francisco Free Intro Class
Welcome to the SF Comedy College!
We appreciate your time and investment in yourself and us. The SFCC is the most attended stand up school in America. Here, you will find a vast network of comedians with varying levels of experience to befriend and assist you with every part of your comedic journey. Welcome to the world of stand-up comedy. It's not as scary as you may have made it up to be!
The foundation for comedy training at the SFCC is the beginner class and advanced class. The beginner class focuses on a technique that anyone can use to be funny. No experience is necessary to participate. The advanced course is group feedback and material development to assist in creating a killer act for public consumption. One on One training and the Semi-Pro classes are for the comedian who has progressed through the other levels and are serious about performing comedy professionally.
The Beginner Class (Technique)
We believe in educating you with solid stand up principles before putting you in front of an audience. Having a working knowledge of comedy fundamentals will put you years ahead of the 'competition.' The technique will put you in control in your early moments of stand-up performance and save you many of the painfully awkward moments that comedians without instruction experience. The group environment found in our beginner and advanced classes will help accelerate your unique material generation procedure and help you to deal with many of the fears you may have of speaking or performing in public. You now have a safe space for risking and failing before you get to the higher stake and sometimes low-end creepy comedy venues around the world.
Zoom Mic Time and Meetups
In addition to watching advanced classes, there is zoom mic time, writing sessions, material development, and different meetups open to beginner students.
We won't attempt to teach our version of "Funny."
Everyone has a unique sense of humor. The SFCC is committed to teaching you many proven principles, techniques, and skills to perform competent stand-up shows. We will help take your sense of humor and assist you in integrating it with solid comedy principles. However, you will make all the creative choices for your act, and you alone will be responsible for your pace of material development and to practice your techniques in front of audiences.
We will offer you structured and organic material generation techniques, solid performance principles, elimination of stage fright methods, riffing, and improvisational skills….
Taught with an initial focus on writing techniques; 'Joke Diagram,' 'Joke Mine', and the 'Joke Prospector'. We will also explore other traditional (association lists, joke web) and non-traditional comedy development techniques (Organic, Ranting, Topical).). We'll learn bit construction, POVs, character development, riffing, and excellent performance with an emphasis on discovering likeability and crowd rapport. Our goal is to recreate your natural storytelling state and combine it with a unique joke structure.
Ultimately, you will decide the techniques that work best, and together in advanced classes, we will apply them for compelling and hilarious performance.
