Jon Stewart took his class.
See how far his class can take you.
New York's most popular standup comedy instructor Scott Blakeman taught the Standup Comedy Workshop at The New School in New York for 25 years, and now offers it privately, with group classes and one on one coaching, both in person and via Skype.
Jon Stewart took Scott Blakeman's class and wrote, ""Dear Mr. Blakeman, Thank you for your interest in 'The Daily Show.' We are currently not hiring, but we'll keep your résumé - Wait! Scott Blakeman? Comedy professor emeritus? I would like to congratulate you on 70 years of teaching disgruntled lawyers, aimless psychologists and wise-ass New Jersey bartenders the art of standup. Your class of 1987 first acclimated me to the profoundly humiliating world of standup. It was just what my high self-esteem needed. Be well, sir."
And Chris Rock says, "Scott knows what he's talking about."
Scott's next workshop in Manhattan starts May 9 (no class May 30) for six Mondays from 7 pm to 9 pm at CAP 21 Studios, 18 West 18 St. $300.
Scott's next workshop in White Plains starts May 10 for six Tuesdays from 7 pm to 9 pm at 151 E. Post Road. $300.
