Got a sense of humour? Love making people laugh?  Time to give stand up comedy a try. This fun and challenging workshop is a great place to start – 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.” This session runs 7 weeks. Registration includes tix to a comedy show/party on Sat. Aug. 20 No prep or experience needed – just bring an old-school paper notebook and a pen.  Please register in advance with Broad Theatrics (not James Bay New Horizons).  Payment in full guarantees your spot – class size is limited.   FAQs   What if I prefer not to pay with credit card?  No problem!

Participants must be 19+. What is the refund policy? Fee is refundable less if withdrawn with notice 24 hrs. PRIOR to the first class.  Once the session begins there are NO refunds for missed classes or for dropping out. However if life gets busy and you have to drop out, you can take a future session of standup or improv for no charge.   I have to miss a class due to a condo meeting/travel/vet 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?  The instructor will give 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? Don't worry. If you are human and have a sense of humour, you can learn the ropes. Be brave and give it a try.  You won't regret it.  Can I contact the instructor with questions? Yes.
