Our Off Mic Standup 101 course is focused on the fundamentals that will empower you to take a fair shot at comedy. Your experienced instructor will cover the structure of a joke, different standup styles, the basics of constructing a set, an overview of the comedy business, open mic and performing tips, best practices for working on material, how to give feedback, and much more.

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.
