One Day Workshops

In addition to our extensive catalog of core and elective classes, Flappers University is also dedicated to continually offering a varied selection of special “one day” workshops and seminars, focused on unique disciplines and specific lessons within the comedy industry. While the special workshops and seminars offered under this program are constantly changing (for current information, be sure to check out Upcoming Classes calendar!), some of our more popular one day workshops include:

Intro to Comedy Intensive

This unique comedy writing workshop is the perfect “sampler” to introduce you to selections from many of the different classes offered at Flappers Comedy University, featuring several of our top instructors gathered together, and is specially tailored towards comics of all levels who need to brush up on the basic fundamentals of stand-up comedy in a fun, safe environment! Topics discussed in this class include fundamentals of joke structure, basic improv skills, comedy management options and how to make money in the comedy industry and much more! If you’re new to our class programs, this is a perfect “no hassle” opportunity to get a sneak peek at the entire Flappers University experience, all wrapped up in one jam-packed afternoon of comedy!

How to Be a Better Emcee

This Flappers University one-day workshop covers the unique duties of the host of a stand-up comedy show – one of the most important positions at the club! A show emcee or host is an integral part of the success or failure of a stand up show, responsible for keeping the energy up in the room, connecting with the crowd and getting them excited about each comic that comes to the stage. This class covers topics such as emcee etiquette, mic technique, club announcements and more, and is specifically taught by Richy Leis, the house booker for Flappers Comedy Clubs (the guy who books all of our emcees!).

“Business of Comedy” workshops

Flappers University is proud to offer a number of different special one-day “Business of Comedy” workshops and seminars, featuring lessons from a list of guest instructors that include some of the most influential names in the industry. These specialty courses cover topics such as “Getting Booked on the Road”, “Breaking Into the College Market”, “How (and why?) to Get a Comedy Manager”, “Social Media for Comedians” and many more – be sure to check out Upcoming Classes calendar, where our newest “Business of Comedy” workshops are constantly popping up – and selling out!
