Introduction to Stand Up Comedy

November 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm | $16.82

Organizer: The Chattery, Phone: 423-413-8978 http://www.thechattery.org/

Have you always loved stand up but have been too nervous to try it? Do your friends think you’re funny and tell you to share your stories on stage?

At this class, you’ll learn the basic “how to” of stand up comedy. This class will cover holding a mic, introducing other comedians, outlining a joke, collaborating with others, and information on open mics. Most importantly, the class will cover what not to do – how to keep from failing on stage.

About the teacher:

Rachel Keely is originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she started her comedy career about 3 years ago. She had always been told she was funny but she was too frightened to speak in front of people with a microphone in hand. She decided to take the Comedy 101 from her now friend and mentor Roy Johnson who has been to “The Show” as a comedian. He gave her the basics that helped alleviate some of the stresses of speaking along with helped 15 of comedy 101-ers put together individual sets over 10 weeks that led to a “sold out” graduation night where they did their bits at the Loony Bin in front of 250 people. It was a success & she was hooked! She loved collaborating with other comedians and starting working with a promoter to do as many shows as she could. She relocated to Chattanooga about a year ago. She has done open mic nights at the Choo-Choo and JJ’s Bohemia. She is passionate about creating a larger buzz for comedy here in Chattanooga where venues, people and kids can be more involved in this craft.
