Couch to Mic is back and getting off the couch has never felt so sweet!
This summer, spend four weeks - in person, with other humans - writing, rehearsing and performing your own, original 3-5 minutes of comedy.
Over the course of four weeks students will be coached and guided in a supportive and fun environment, where each person can discover and amplify their own comedic voice, culminating in an exciting, live show.
Couch to Mic is an opportunity to take moments from your life and transform it to an empowering comedy experience. You have three minutes of material for sure!
Take your ideas off the page and onto the comedy stage.
