A professional comedian’s journey can be tough, but Sarah Tollemache makes it look easy. From her countless sets on late night TV to her critically-acclaimed comedy album “Voluptuous Boy,” Sarah knows how to make people laugh and how to get paid while doing it. In this introductory workshop, she’ll pull back the curtain of writing jokes and share how to navigate the world of professional comedy successfully. 


This introductory workshop will include a fifteen-minute set performed by Sarah and a breakdown of her favorite jokes, accompanied by an explanation of the thought process behind how she constructed them. 


After this introductory workshop, if you’re interested in diving deeper into the skill of comedy writing, join Sarah for this intimate, 90-minute comedy writing workshop with just 10 participants. Those who attend the introductory workshop will get $25 off of their ticket to the in-depth, 90-minute workshop.
