About this Event
The Feminine Comique is a beginners foundation course that strives to give prospective female performers the confidence and skills they need to begin a career in stand-up comedy. Students will spend five weeks in a supportive all-female environment while learning the fundamentals necessary to write and perform stand-up.
The course is founded on the comedy principles of the critically acclaimed Lincoln Lodge, a national leader in cultivating and developing new comedy talent.
The weekly 2-hour sessions of this course will focus on:
