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 instructor's 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 individual jokes, 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 original 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, 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 tours he performed throughout the UK, Europe and South Africa. He 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. He has over a dozen TV credits including THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN.

I recommend the MCS Comedy Writing Class with Ross Bennett. It was a great class that enhanced my stand-up comedy. I looked forward to every class. I would travel each week five and a half hours one way and back to attend class. Ross gave us assignments that strengthened my comedy writing skills. His critiques on our material was so helpful, and it helped me think outside of the box when approaching my stand-up. It was money well invested!
