About The Course

We’ll practice different methods of crowd work, using exercises that focus on being “in the moment” and genuine. We’ll also do improv exercises that will empower you to think, engage and respond in a sensible manner. This class is designed for comedians who are looking to learn a crucial skill or want to sharpen their audience interaction.

About the Instructor

Che Guerrero

Che Guerrero has spent 12 years tackling race, marriage, and work through stand-up comedy. A revolutionary voice on the modern comedy scene, Che’s style is rooted in his experiences growing up undocumented. His sense of humor and command of the stage is the result of obstacles often unseen by the average American. In 2014, Che broke out on the New York scene with a feature on Gotham Comedy. He released his first album, “Thank You That’s My Time” in 2016 and continued to hit every stage from The Hoboken Comedy Festival to The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. By 2018, Che was being highlighted on BET as part of 50 Central’s “Artist Spotlight.” In 2019, he released his second comedy album, “A Temporary Summit.”

As an instructor, Che makes his students laugh (duh!) but he also is a true empath, guiding each person in the class to dig deep and find the topics, jokes, and stories that feel the most personal. He doesn’t want his students to be like everyone else; he wants them to be themselves.
