Overview

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. Upon graduating from the course, alumni have the opportunity to continue to practice and perform through our Veteran Open Mics, partner performances, workshops, and Alumni Mentor Program.
