Give the Gift of COMEDY

DSI's Comedy School prides itself as the longest standing and most celebrated comedy training center in North Carolina. Our intro classes are perfect for absolutely everyone, at every experience level. We emphasize positivity and collaboration to create a fun, safe atmosphere where students can become more creative, spontaneous, confident, and, yes, funny!

For $225 you can give a friend or loved one the gift of a comedy class. With new Improv 101 and Standup 101 classes starting every few weeks, you'll know that they can find a time that works for them. Or, is your friend or loved one already enrolled in the DSI Comedy School? That's wonderful! A gift registration code can apply towards our advanced classes, too.


About our classes

IMPROV 101 explores the basics of comedic improvisation: team-building, trust, speed, active listening, and agreement. Students learn to be fearless and have fun on stage using the DSI approach to improv comedy.

STANDUP 101 explores the art of comedy writing and standup performance. Learn how to use your persona, build on a premise, develop a joke and generate punch lines until you find ones that really hit. Learn how to spin true stories and deliver a routine that both engages and entertains your audience. How can you get the most mileage out of you?

Our Advanced Classes, for students already enrolled in DSI's Comedy School, take students' comedy skills to the next level.
