Are you writing with hope? Do you write something and just ‘hope’ it’s funny? Anytime an audience laughs there’s a stimulus present. Learning how to implement that stimuli at will is key to be able to write and develop material consistently, especially when faced with a deadline or special event.

“If you are an up and coming comedian or you are just getting your feet wet in the world of comedy take this course! Jerry has been a professional comedian for the past 20 years and has the unique ability to teach at any skill level…”

“Jerry Corley’s Stand Up Comedy class was amazing. I went into in wanting to learn how to write funny. Never wanted to do a stand up rountine. Didn’t think I had it in me. With his help and guidance, I performed a 10 minute set in front of 90 people. It was one of the greatest nights of my life. He knows his comedy and is great at teaching it. I would recommend this class to everyone.” 

“Jerry has turned my comedy dream into a comedy reality by allowing me to find my own unique voice. Without his comedy class and caring support I would not have come so far, so fast.”
