Class Description
There are no “dad jokes” in this class. Learn how to write funny, original jokes on any subject, for any occasion. Jokes make everything better – stories, schoolwork, trying to convince your parents to let you stay up later. You’ll learn the secrets of the comedy trade from a successful professional comedian.

Mike Larsen is a nationally-known comedian who has appeared on HBO, Showtime, and The Tonight Show, as well as being a regular performer at the Funny Bone here in Columbus. He’s also an Emmy-nominated comedy writer for shows like The Drew Carey Show and Ellen. Mike’s joke-writing workshop is fun and informative and he GUARANTEES you’ll write an original joke in the first 5 minutes.
