The Business of Comedy Seminar

Comedy classes in Nashville are here! Starting off in stand-up comedy can be REALLY intimidating. It’s like driving in the fog with no lights. Of course I didn’t have the advantage of taking comedy classes to help me navigate. That is the way I felt when I first started. There was no way to see what was ahead, how long it would take to get there, or which way I should be going.

After 24 years as a full time, professional comedian, I can now easily see the path. The fog has long lifted. The obstacles – some great challenges – are less intimidating. The journey is much more clear. You’ll have to learn a lot on your own. No one can do this for you.
