COMEDY 4 TEENS by TEENS

We have a brand new series coming to Broadway Comedy Club monthly. COMEDY 4 TEENS by TEENS is just what it sounds like, a comedy show for youth performed by youth. You can’t vote yet, you perhaps barely can drive, but you do have opinions about the world and our teens deliver.

Comedy 4 Teens

The performers are past and current students of our comedy 4 teens program that have been performing Improv and Stand-Up Comedy for 2-4 years or more. (Want to learn comedy CLICK HERE)

 

The audience are teens and families that love comedy. These shows are like Nickelodeon or Disney channel but far less annoying. Bring your theater class, friends form school, a date, or the whole family.

Many in the audience will be friends and family of the performers. But these are far more than simple class showcases. These are truly up and coming comedy geniuses that just happen to still live at home. Most up and coming comics still live at home at age 30 so these guys and gals are way ahead of the curve!

Look for many of these comedians on Netflix this winter. Our Spring class showcase was filmed – and many of our comics interviewed – for Julie’s Greenroom, the new show with legendary Julie Andrews and Jim Henson muppets teaching kids about the arts. This particular episode stars Ellie Kemper, best known for her role as Kimmy Schmidt in the Netflix comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and features some of our comics performing Improv Comedy. You might see some of their stand-up comedy too.

Julie's greenroom

Most of our kid and teen performers also can be heard on iHeart radio’s iRead2Know station. These 30-minute shows feature both our professional cast and students performing Improv and Stand-Up Comedy.

Improv ClassesWHY IMPROV COMEDY?

Improv is a ton of fun, YES, AND very useful teaching numerous life skills. In addition to performing, Improv teaches creative writing, critical thinking (out of the box), community (team, respect, listening, focus) and leadership (public speaking, self confidence, eye contact).

The interactive shows alone are very therapeutic. Laughter has been known to be very beneficial to one’s health as it lowers blood pressure and decreases stress. Studies at John Hopkins have proven laughter to even raise test scores and better test prep. People that are allowed to have joy and laughter in their lives participate in the process of education and thereby learn far better and faster.

Every workshop starts with warm-up games that prepare the individual and team to work and play. Simple games like ZIP ZAP ZUP require focus, listening and eye contact while having fun. We teach its OK to “mess-up” and not to judge or worry about correcting others. Instead we let minor mishaps pass without comment. We eliminate fear of failure, because there are no mistakes in Improv.

We teach about story telling. Improv is as much about writing as it is performance. We develop characters and relationships, settings and action for our stories on the spot. In Improv we call this the WHO, WHERE and WHAT of a scene. By learning how to craft a story in this hands-on matter, students return to Language Arts classes better prepared to write essays and original stories as well as tackle the classic novels, short-stories, plays and poems.

I know I never appreciated Shakespeare until approaching the plays as an actor. Similarly we teach how to bring these character to life. We empower ones imagination and critical mind at the same time.

Humor and creativity work in similar ways, says humor guru William Fry, M.D., of Stanford University–by creating relationships between two disconnected items, you engage the whole brain.

Building a better mind leads to success in all areas of study. While we focus on Language Arts, Team & Leadership skills, students of these fields excel in all areas of study. Abstract concepts in science and math now seem easy to comprehend. Characters in history come alive.
