Fearlessly Funny: Stand Up Comedy Intensive with Beginner Option



We have one change regarding the venue for the beginner portion only. We aren't able to get into the comedy club until 12 noon after all, so no later than 10:15am please go directly to:
Cosmos Diner
395 Second Ave. at 23rd St., New York, NY 10010
It's just over 2 blocks from the club so we'll do our beginner workshop there, and then head on over to New York Comedy Club from 12noon til 5pm. Sorry for the changes.
Please be sure to bring a notebook, a pen and your great sense of humor! You can feel free to bring any existing jokes or observations as we'll be punching up existing stuff later in the session.
