The Four Day Weekend Training Center was founded to nurture and develop a student's growing interest in various comedic forms, including the art of improvisation, sketch-writing, and stand-up. The Training Center's mission is to provide students, of all skill levels, the necessary tools to grow as an improviser, a sketch-writer, and a stand-up comedian. We offer a variety of classes that teach these various disciplines, along with "live" performance opportunities to help students hone and develop their craft and skill-sets.


The WINTER-TERM will begin January 2020 and classes are open for enrollment. We look forward to seeing you in class!
