Important Disclaimer *

Our stand-up comedy classes and workshops are uncensored. We believe in the freedom of expression, both for our instructors and students. Stand-up comedy is an art form that fosters self-expression and free speech, essential for societal growth, idea sharing, connection, and progress. In our classes, you’ll find examples from professional comedians, including some known for their ‘blue’ or edgy comedy. We want to clarify that our curriculum encompasses a wide spectrum of comedic styles and doesn’t exclusively focus on ‘clean’ or family-friendly comedy. It’s essential to know that our content can include adult themes, rated-R language, and what some may consider off-color or risquĂ© humor. This class is not intended for children or those who may find such content uncomfortable. If you’re seeking a clean, PG-rated, or censored curriculum, our class may not be the best fit for your preferences. We value transparency and aim to create an inclusive space for all forms of comedy expression.
