Courses are designed for adults and recommended for persons 17 or older, however, some exceptions may be made. All Comedy School classes meet at our theater on Franklin Street.


Intro Courses

No experience necessary. Let North Carolina's best comedians teach you how to be more creative, spontaneous, and playful while meeting new people. Some comedy students are ISO the stage or have aspirations of fame (and fortune), but most are simply looking for fun hobby and professional development.

Advanced Courses & Workshops

Take your comedy skills to the next level.


Do I need to have performance experience? What if I'm not funny?

Our intro classes are designed for people with any experience level, including beginners. We foster a safe and creative atmosphere where students are free to learn by taking risks. And you ARE funny, whether you know it or not! We're not here to tell you what's funny so much as to help you unlock that secret comedian within.

An upcoming class works for me, except I know I'll miss one or two classes. Is that okay?

Definitely. We know that people have busy schedules, and so we design our curricula to allow for up to two absences per six-week class. We also offer makeup opportunities on a case-by-case basis.
