WHY US? HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?

Rise Up Comedy hires only those that have innate wisdom to teach. We value teaching as a talent. A true teacher inspires the student to explore and follow their own innate wisdom, not mimic a celebrity. Our innovative method has students finding their own voice at lightening speed and surpassing years of comedy struggles.

Our teachers are also working professionals.

We offer classes online culminating into a performance.

We teach clean comedy and provide a safe space for people who know they are funny but unsure as to how to create that first comedy set.

We provide a safe teaching space free of prejudice and encourage those underrepresented in the comedy field (BIPoC, LGBTQ+, women and over 50) to claim their stage!

5 week class structure leading to performance.

Week One - WELCOME and Finding your funny - what/who are you?

Week Two - Getting your game on!

Week Three - Set creation and feedback

Week Four - Rhythm - the secret ingredient!

Week Five - Polishing it up

PERFORMANCE - Invite family and friends to laugh! The performance is integrated with working comedy pros and partial proceeds benefit the nonprofit.

What People Are Saying:

This class was amazing. I had zero confidence going in. I never thought I could get up in front of a crowd, but after only four classes, I was able to not only to perform, but perform confidently in front of a crowd and the response from the crowd was spectacular. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who has an interest in comedy. I was taught how to use life experiences to my benefit.
