Got a sense of humour? Love making people laugh? Give stand up comedy a try. This fun and challenging workshop is a great place to get started - even if you are slightly terrified.
Learn how to write and perform original stand-up comedy from a seasoned professional. Kirsten Van Ritzen is an encouraging teacher who shares her love of the craft and years of experience. She has taught hundreds of people - from all walks of life and all ages. Many have gone on to host their own shows, win comedy competitions, and appear on television. The workshop has been described as “inspiring”, “life changing” and “a weekly date with laughter.”

I have to miss a class due to my kids/work/dentist appointment, etc.
We understand. If you miss a class, the instructor will send you a brief email about what you missed. If you don't have time to do your your homework, that's okay too.
Wait - what is this about homework?
You will get weekly comedy writing assignments – don’t worry, there won’t be grades and nobody cares about spelling. Try to set aside at least one hour per week outside of class to create comedy.
What if I am not funny?
Yeah you are. Sign up.
Can I contact the instructor with questions?
Yes. Email Kirsten at email@example.com or call 778.440.0408
