Couch to Mic is a performance-based educational experience. Participants spend four weeks - in person, with other humans - writing, rehearsing and performing their own, original 5ish minutes of comedy.

Students will be coached and guided by Stephanie Lazenby in a supportive and fun environment, where each person can discover and amplify their own comedic voice, culminating in an exciting, live show.

Couch to Mic is an opportunity to take moments from your life and transform them into an empowering comedy experience. Get your butt off the couch and launch your ideas from the page and onto the comedy stage!
