What You Can Expect from the Scott Long Comedy Course

I have been a touring standup comedian for almost 17 years now and have been a TV writer for 9 years.  I will teach you the techniques that have been successful for me.  Together we will help you find what is unique about your point of view and bring it to the surface.  If your focus is standup comedy, screenplays, or being a more dynamic speaker in your business life, I will show you how to unlock the best comedic voice you have to offer.

Too many people spend years wasting time dreaming of finding success in some creative profession.  This course will push you at least 2 years ahead of those who are trying to wing it. You will have a built-in peer group as well access to the information I’ve gathered in my 20 years in the comedy world.

We cover how to write, where to get inspiration, how to structure it, and when to tweak your material. I will show you the presentation techniques which will give you the best chance of succeeding with an audience.

The first half of the course will be me helping you find the best comedic material you have. Too many comics hit the stage without understanding how to maximize their time. I will teach you the techniques and exercises I have to unlock your fullest potential as a comedy writer. Also I will discuss how to use social media and the internet to develop your comedy voice.

The second half of the course will be focused on performing standup comedy. The greatest comedians in the history of comedy are good joke writers, but there is more than that involved in the equation. There are many styles that can make you more successful onstage. I will help you take what are your strong points as a comic and point you in a direction to develop a style onstage that fits these strengths.

This class was amazing, I thought stand up was just getting up there and telling jokes, its so much more and I just hate to think what would’ve happened if I’d tried to go on stage without the knowledge I gained in this class. Everyone in the class was great and I still keep in contact with most of them. -Jeremy- (Former class member)

Comments from Past Comics Who Have Taken Scott’s Course

Scott Long’s comedy classes went beyond what I expected to get out of the class. (not to say that my expectations were low) Who wouldn’t want a pro in the comedy game giving you tips on what and what not to do. –Ryan–

Yeah, the class was definitely worth it, who knows how long I’d have been running into the same road blocks over & over, thinking I was making progress without the insight Scott brings to the table. All in all, Learned a lot, met some great people, & had a good time doing it. Thanks again  –Bill–

If Scott had a new class starting on Tuesday, I would be going because I know I would learn more and grow more. You can never learn enough about writing and performing comedy. And to learn from a pro like Scott…priceless. If you’re on stage now or always wanted to try stand up, take Scott’s class. Be prepared to work hard. Now Scott, when’s the next class? –Jeffrey–
