Didn’t Get What You Wanted When You Took That Stand-up Comedy Class Or Workshop? Here’s Why…
Then you know that I am usually NOT a fan of stand-up comedy classes or workshops as far as what they have to offer in the realm of showing individuals how to develop and deliver high level stand-up comedy material that actually works on an individual-by-individual basis.
