What you'll do

I will teach you the secret to transforming your tragic experiences into hilarious stand-up monologues by analyzing famous comedians sets from all over the world.

We will answer comedy FAQ's:
1) How to connect emotionally with the audience?
2) How do we turn your stories of pain and shame into comedic gold?
3) What are the 5 basic joke structures that EVERY comedian uses?
4) Which of the structures do your stories/jokes fit into?
5) Who is your comedic character? What is your comedic flaw? What is your blindspot?

Once we cover these 5 essentials we will go over:
6) How to separate yourself from your critic.
7) How to best do an act out.
8) How to clearly define various POV's (Points Of View) and when to switch in and out of them.
9) How to structure a successful comedy set or speech using hammock-ing.
10) How to get yourself exposure, get booked, and ultimately get paid.

In addition, participants will be given the opportunity to join our exclusive comedy writing workshops where you can meet other funny professionals and develop your material even further.

KEY WORDS: Team Building, Good for Corporate, Contact for Private Groups, Become a Stand-Up Comedian

Over the last 2 decades I have coached and written for both professional and beginner comedians. I produced the first ever Transgender Comedy Special at the Hollywood Improv in association with the Los Angeles LGBTQ Center. After performing at the Comedy Store, Hollywood Improv, and clubs around the world, I founded The MISFIT TOYS Comedy Studio, which promotes diversity and Transformative Comedy.

Nothing brings me more joy than helping people find their comedic voice. Whether you want to become a professional comedian or would like to entertain your friends and family at your next reunion or business function, this course will change the way you think and write comedy. We all have something to share and comedy is the perfect way to unite us.

This is honestly one of the best Airbnb experiences I’ve ever attended!!! I can’t even explain how much content Iggy taught in an hour. I learned so much about how to write content, structure jokes and bring them to life. Iggy even showed video clips to highlight specific examples from diverse comedians. I laughed AND learned so much in such a short period of time and feel super inspired to continue learning more about comedy. I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking to add some fun/excitement to their life! Iggy’s energy is also super dope and welcoming - his personality made the entire experience super comfortable and that much better :)

Iggy was fantastic! As with most stand up comedy, it can be a bit controversial but that is part of the fun. Highly recommend!

What a special offering! Iggy is a comedic genius, who is so generous with his time and expertise. I've had faint dreams of pursuing comedy for a while, and this was the perfect introductory course. Iggy lays out the foundations of stand-up jokes, gives great examples, and teaches an incredibly effective, empowering class for any burgeoning comedians! So glad I stumbled upon this. Even if you don't want to pursue stand-up, take this class. You'll never listen to comics the same way!

I loved meeting Iggy and learning about the different joke structures. This session (with two other students) was personalized to cater to each of our top 3 goals. He taught us joke structure and gave very practical tips on sketches, developing content, and performing. I'm excited to turn my little ideas into real jokes that I might be able to perform for family and friends one day. Anything beyond that would be scary amazing!

Just one hour with Iggy changed the way I see comedy forever. Iggy is a ton of fun and he really knows his stuff! I took the class out of curiosity and ended up learning a lot about comedic structure and how to challenge myself with a comedic persona. Thanks Iggy!

Iggy was smart, friendly, funny, and informative. Our group had fun learning from him and he gave us great insights about comedy that we can apply to our work. Everyone enjoyed the hour. We are a corporate team so if we did it again, I would just reinforce that everything needs to be kept very clean.
