The Basics of Stand Up Comedy with Art Sturtevant
Thursdays, 7:00 - 9:00pm
March 7 - April 18
There is NO class on March 28
Basics of Stand Up Comedy with Art Sturtevant won’t teach you to be funny. You’re already funny – that’s why you’re thinking about taking a comedy class.
This six-week, two-hour class will, instead, help you figure out how to communicate the funny you already have to an audience, and experience that exquisite nectar, the laughter of strangers.
Over six weeks, we’ll work together to develop your first five-minute set, which you’ll perform in front of a live audience at our final class.
Here are some of the things we’ll cover:
• how to write material
• how to use open mics to improve your comedy
• crowd work
• how to host a show
• how to transition from open mics to showcases and host work
• being yourself and performing in your own voice
• technical aspects, like mic work, “the light,” etc.
So take that first step, and sign up for the class. Can’t wait to see you there!
Art's a smart, funny comic with the interests of a 20-year old and the body of a middle-age man. His observations on pop culture, being a father, and how you can change so much and so little over the span of decades have cracked up audiences all over the East Coast.
Art Sturtevant has performed at Laughing Skull, Comedy Zones, Side Splitters, The Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, and -- back in the day -- NYC's Comedy Cellar, Catch a Rising Star, Sweeps and Triple Inn. Art's a contributing writer for Asheville Disclaimer, a weekly satire publication.
