Hey stand-up comedy is fun! Or is it? I have been doing stand up, sometimes professionally, for a nice chunk of time now. I would like to show you what I know about stand up. Can I teach you how to be funny? of course not. You're probably already funny. Can I tell you about how to organize a stand up comedy set? Probably! This is a pay what you can workshop at media island international across the street from the Olympia library. I do not want anybody who wants to do "shocking" comedy. There will be some other comedians participating too. We will talk for about an hour about the nature stand up comedy. Then we will break into some small groups and discuss some ideas we have for jokes. After which we will do an authentic small comedy open mic for people to get on the microphone and try to stand up comedy in front of a hopefully supportive audience of other workshop attendees.
