Comedy School

Stand-Up Workshop with Jessica Kirson

Jessica Kirson learned about comedy the hard way, through decades of trial-and-error. Now she's coming to DC to make your journey a little bit easier -- by sharing "how to get further, faster." This seminar will include advice on finding your stage persona, discovering the "psychology" of comedy, sharpening your delivery, self-promotion and marketing, and hosting shows.

Jessica's one-hour comedy special, produced by Bill Burr, debuted on Comedy Central in 2019. She hosted two podcasts, "Relatively Sane" and "Disgusting Hawk," and she produced & is featured in the documentary, “Hysterical” about female comedians which can be found on FX and Hulu.
