WHO WE ARE:
Creative Veins is an award-winning, A+ rated performing arts studio that trains students of all ages and experience levels in acting, improv, stand-up, and screenwriting. All our classes are taught by professional, agency-represented performing artists who live in Jacksonville and work regionally (Atlanta, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, Nashville, and Knoxville) on paid bookings in film, theater, commercials, television, and live show productions. Additionally, many of our instructors are multi-disciplined, meaning that besides being highly trained and skilled in their craft, they have also trained in improv, music, singing, dance, stand-up, and more!

WHAT WE'LL COVER:
Our 1-Day Stand-Up Workshop is a condensed version of our 4-week session where we'll cover everything from the biology of laughter, joke structure, how to write, edit, refine and craft our own original material, create a set list, perform for an audience, stage mechanics, and how to hold and capture attention! Our stand-up comedy workshop is intended for students who want to learn the foundational skills necessary to be a bookable, and exceptional comedian capable of writing and performing jokes that get a minimum of 1/LPM.
A FEW OF THE THINGS YOU'LL LEARN:
- how to mine through all of your ideas for joke topics (premises)
- how to take your premises and structure them into jokes
- how to edit, refine, & punch up jokes so they're hard-hitting
- how to order those jokes into a setlist for the stage
- how to capture, keep, and command the room's attention
HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT:
If you want to be a great comedian, you must first have great material. That means you must learn how to write before you ever jump on a stage. In case you were wondering, we're not like that other "comedy school" in town that doesn't teach this crucial skill and, instead, throws you on stage to be critiqued by people who have never done the job of a comic. That is the epitome of wasteful and probably not how you want to spend your time. We do not believe in wasting time; yours OR ours. That kind of "trial and error" process taught is lengthy and costly. Instead, we're focused on showing you how to do the job skillfully before you ever take the stage. We believe in teaching essential skills like writing, performing, and stage mechanics first. Hence, you have something valuable to offer an audience. "Value for value" is our motto, and we are passionate about teaching students how to do the actual job of a skilled stand-up comedian.
???? ???????? ?? ????? ???:
♦ those ready to learn how to create, write, edit, and refine their original material with the help of our comedy instructors
♦ adults & mature teens with no formal experience who are genuinely interested in learning the foundation for great stand-up comedy
♦ those who love comedy that want to build confidence, strengthen public speaking skills, explore a passion, and be challenged
Our stand-up comedy classes are taught by professional, working comedians with over 20+ years of combined experience. Our philosophy is that the best person to teach you how to do the job you want is by someone who already has that job!

?lass Size + C????-?? ????: Please note, our in-person studio classes are always kept smaller in size to provide a more personalized curriculum to ensure each student’s success in the program! Once a class is full it is marked as SOLD OUT and we cannot add any additional students to it. Additionally, and most importantly, the health and well-being of our students and faculty is vital to us. All students and faculty are required to wear masks as they enter the building. We're social distancing of at least 6 feet, requiring handwashing/sanitizing, and have a no-touch policy in place. All classrooms and common areas are sanitized prior to and immediately following all classes.
