In this course students will learn basic Stand Up Comedy writing including joke structure and performance techniques with the goal of becoming confident and comfortable on stage.
At Flappers University we believe that comedy is truly an art-form, a combination of raw talent and technique. Talent can be lost without technique, so we first teach joke structure and the basic language of comedy. We also believe that what makes a great comedian is being personal and authentic and, perhaps, a rule-breaker, so we provide a safe and fun environment where you can be just that: authentic, inspired and successful. Whether you are already a working comedian or looking to make it your profession, or simply need help with that next presentation or just want to come and have fun, we can help you find the path to funny.

"High-energy"... "Hilarious"... and, most often, "So true!" - these are some of the most common terms fans have used again and again to describe Ken´s popular and personal brand of stand-up comedy. A hit among both blue-collar and white-collar fans alike, Ken is a proud member of what he describes as the "Lost Boys" - those awkward-but-loveable men who never seem to fully grow up. A man-child and a geek, Ken´s comedy is absolutely littered with acerbic wit and memorable pop culture references; like so many of his outcast Gen-X brethren, Ken´s brand of humor makes it painfully and hilariously apparent that he´s far more comfortable learning video game codes and movie quotes than attempting to understand anything about the mysteries of the opposite sex.
