The Class

Comedy Bootcamp is the first-ever stand up comedy class for veterans, service members, and military family members. Led by professional comics, the seven-week course develops the comedy writing and performing skills of participants through hands-on instruction and group feedback. Comedy Bootcamp culminates with a graduation show at a local comedy club, with each participant delivering a five minute set to a public audience.

Alumni Opportunities

Upon graduating from Comedy Bootcamp, alumni are encouraged to continue with stand-up comedy by participating in ASAP-coordinated open mics, performances, and alumni meet-ups. Our graduates have performed at The Warner Theatre, Gotham Comedy Club, DC Improv, and Walter Reed Medical Center -- and for such organizations as Google, CEB, The Miss American Foundation, and Team Red, White, and Blue. Though 0% of our alumni have comedy experience prior to participating in Comedy Bootcamp, 76% continue to practice and perform stand-up comedy after graduating.
