What?  Why?  Do you want to make people laugh? Here’s your chance. In this crash course, you will go from the fundamentals of comedy writing and performance technique to constructing your own stand-up set. Material will be workshopped in a supportive, constructive environment led by stand-up comedian Dan Crohn, who has appeared on Last Comic Standing and the popular WTF podcast with Marc Maron. With years of experience teaching and performing stand-up, Dan will help you work towards a final graduation performance, MC-ed by him and scheduled for Thursday, February 8 with a dress rehearsal Thursday, February 1.

Applicants should send a 300-word essay to stand-up-comedy@mit.edu by December 26 explaining why they want to take this series. Participants must commit to regular attendance and to the final performance on Feb. 8. Prepare to amuse! Funded by the De Florez Fund For Humor.
