The business world has embraced comedy as a tool for success. The art of Stand Up continues to help innovate, build & strengthen relationships, hone the ability to “read a room” and boost confidence. In this class designed for everyone, you will receive a “crash course” in stand up comedy. You will be introduced to the tools and techniques that translate directly to the real world. By learning how to bring honesty, specificity and a strong point of view to any situation you will learn how to “discover” the funny and  build comfort when speaking to a crowd in your own authentic voice. We are ALL faced with opportunities to be in the spotlight. Moments where you have to to stand up, by yourself, in front of a group and pitch them something you believe in. Often our audiences can be a “tough crowd.”  But if you can confidently and authentically speak your truth and live to tell that tale–then you’ll realize that you can do anything.
