Stand-Up Comedy Intro Workshop

Come join a judgment-free community of folks interested in exploring and honing their comedic skills. If you’re always told you should try stand-up, or that you’re the “funny one” in the group, this class is for you. Together, we develop our individual comedic performance skills together by writing and workshopping material for the stage.

Classes include an intro to joke writing, comedic timing, storytelling, voice projection, and stage presence, improvisation, and stand-up “dos and don’ts” (ie: NEVER run the light). We have special guests drop in to share insights and wisdom from their experiences onstage, and of course, we write and perform our jokes for the class.

The class is led by Kelowna comedian, Kate Belton. Kate has been performing stand-up comedy since 2015 when she started in Vancouver and instantly developed a love for the art- form. Kate has performed in comedy clubs across the country, showcased at Yuk Yuk’s in Vancouver, and recorded her first comedy album in Winnipeg in October 2019. Kate hosts the popular Cool Ranch Comedy show at Fernando’s, which brings in headlining comedians from all over Canada.

The series runs for four (4) weeks, every Tuesday from 6pm to 8pm:
