Comedy Writing Bootcamp with Ross Bennett, Starting January 22nd


Comedy Writing Bootcamp is a no-nonsense 6 week intensive push to help you create, develop and polish new material through writing exercises and in-class performance.

Our instructors unique organic process focuses on helping each student discover their own innate sense of humor by exploring their personal life experiences and observations. They then learn how to craft these “comic nuggets” into jokes and which are finally honed through in-class performance. By using this process you will learn the nuts and bolts of what it takes to create smart professional material that you can take on stage and be proud of.

Each student is guaranteed the opportunity to perform at least 3 times during the course. (more if time permits)

Although students are strongly encouraged to write new material they can also use their time to work on existing material.

There is no graduation show for the Bootcamp.

Our instructor has been a working professional comedian for 40 years. He has lived and performed extensively in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago and New York. He has Headlined at almost every Comedy Club in the US as well as thousands of Corporate events, Colleges, Benefits, Civic Events etc. Over the course of 14 international trips he toured extensively throughout the UK, Amsterdam, Paris and South Africa. He also studied for 2 years at THE SECOND CITY in Chicago, instructed by some of the finest improvisors in the country including Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell.
