In this gentle and fun crash course, comedian and playwright Megan Gogerty will lead the class through the basics of standup comedy – how to write, edit, and deliver jokes based on your real life. No experience is required, just a smidge of courage and the ability to laugh at yourself! Women, people of color, and other folks who consistently get talked over during meetings are especially encouraged to attend.
