Treat yourself to a walk on the funny side. Course is offered by professional comedian Stu Stuart through the ASUW Experimental College in Seattle. Course meets three times on the University of Washington campus and a fourth time at the Seattle Comedy Underground for the Big Show, where students have an opportunity to perform in a real comedy club. Course fee is $95 for general public and $75 for UW students.
Stu has been teaching Beginning Stand-Up Comedy since 1991. Since then, he has taught hundreds of students. Fellow-professional-comedian and class alumnus, Peter Greyy (pictured in the latest in sweater-vest apparel) often assists in teaching the class, drawing from his Wikipedia-like knowledge of comedy and years of experience. Peter is also the talent coordinator for the Seattle International Comedy Competition.
Stu typically teaches the class three times each year. The class is a great experience for those who want to learn the basics of stand-up comedy. It takes a lot of courage, and it's a lot of work writing and performing comedy. But in the end, not only do students have a lot of fun and learn about comedy, but they develop a greater self-confidence and a belief that anything is possible," says Stu, adding, "I've found that the average person, given some coaching on the mechanics of stand-up and given some moral support is very funny on stage."
