Baron will be taking a 6 week online stand up workshop. This workshop is for actors/stand ups who are looking to delve into standup or further their own stand up career. You will spend 6 weeks working on the form of stand up and your own personal material with Baron guiding and mentoring you.

Baron’s words on what the course will deal with.

“In this class you’ll learn the mental fun of Stand-Up Comedy. Stand-Up is an ongoing conversation with oneself and culture at large. Our goal is to help you explore the ways you want to participate in that conversation by discussing various theories and approaches to the art of Stand-Up Comedy, by examining the ways the masters approach it, and, most importantly, by uncovering what you believe is funny and authentic to you. 

We will start with the basics: writing a joke. The joke is the building block of all Stand-Up. We will learn the molecular structure of a joke, identify the different parts of a joke, and how to think in joke structure. We will learn how any joke portrays a worldview, and how the way a joke sounds and moves can change depending on the context in which it is told or received.

From there, we will move into discovering and realizing one’s point of view, and how to tune the jokes you write into what will be your individual comedic voice.” – Baron Vaughn
