Do I Have To Be Funny To Take The Class

No– you simply have to enjoy funny things. We will help bring out the funny in you.

Is this a lot of work? 

It can be very little work, but you may end up liking it enough that you put some work into it.

Do I have to want to be a comedian when I grow up?

Absolutely not. This class is a fun way to learn how to express yourself. 

What kinds of supplies do I need?

All you need is a device that connects you to the internet. 

Will there be snacks?

There will always be snacks if someone in your house provides them.
