COMEDY CAMP, Times Square NYC

Summer Comedy 2022 Starts June 27!!! most students join us for two to four weeks. But every week is a self-contained unit and a rare few will even join us all ten weeks every summer.

Each week is a self contained session with classes in improv and stand-up comedy.

Monday starts with a master class in Improv Comedy, introducing a number of warm-up, technique and performance games. Then we move into an open-mic style session where students develop original stand-comedy routines, starting with personal stories of observation and experience.

Our students at Caroline’s on Broadway,featuring America’s Funniest Kid, 2019 winner, 2022 headliner, Comedy Club camper since 2018, Carolyn White.

Tuesday – Thursday are more like rehearsals than classes. A series of mock performance sessions develop experienced performers.

Since 2011, our Comedy Camp and Classes have provided kids and teens a place to surround themselves with laughter while developing both professional level performance and valuable life skills (Creative writing, critical thinking, public speaking, self confidence, self awareness, leadership, team, listening and even empathy).

Every week is self contained with a performance showcase every Friday. Most campers join us for two to four weeks. A rare few practically move in, hanging out all summer.
