What you'll learn in this stand up comedy class:

So, you want to do stand-up comedy, but you're not a bro... We got you!

Radical Comedy covers what open mics are like in Chicago, proper mic etiquette, how to safely navigate your way through the sea of a whitewashed scene! This course will also discuss safe spaces, racism, misogyny, political correctness in the comedy scene, and how you can build your material around the idea of awareness for people who are different from you. If you're a woman who usually has to go to an open mic and hear nothing but guys telling sex jokes, an LGBTQ person trying to make a homophobic audience laugh, a straight white guy wondering "Is this racist?", this is your class!
