Stand-up Comedy Class - Los Angeles

The Bobbie Oliver Method is
The Tao of Comedy... The Zen of Comedy.... The Art of Comedy

 

The Tao of Comedy approach to stand-up comedy is unlike any other comedy workshop out there. Based on Bobbie Oliver’s book The Tao of Comedy: Embrace the Pause, our method is grounded in Zen Buddhist and Taoist philosophies, and helps each person tap into their creativity and their authentic voice as a comedian.  

Our approach is organic and extremely positive. The feed-back is detailed and constructive, and while specific to each individual comic, is placed in real-time and historical context so that everyone in class benefits. The stand-up comedy workshops are fun and supportive. We provide a safe space to create, experiment and find your own comedy voice.

We steer away from hack premises, overdone formulas and caricatures. All stand-up comedy classes are taught personally by 28-year comedy veteran and still-working comic, Bobbie Oliver. We also provide you with lots of performance opportunities inside and outside of class with our weekly open mics, shows, festivals and grad showcase.

No formulas. No props.
No stringent through-lines. No wacky catch phrases. Just pure stand-up comedy.

Join our comedy family of over 1,000 new and advanced working comedians in Los Angeles and all over the world who perform, produce, and play together. Come find yourself, and a few friends along the way, in a journey of self-expression and artistic creativity.

All Tao of Comedy workshops end in a showcase at Flappers Comedy Club Main Room in Burbank. Bobbie’s students have been seen on TV shows and commercials on every network. 

 

Student: What should I write about?
Teacher: What are you thinking about?

Student: What is my persona?
Teacher: Who is asking the question?
