SMH COMEDY SOCIETY WANTS YOU: TO BE FUNNY!!!
We are currently recruiting comics for our Stand Up For Mental Health classes beginning in July 2021 exact date TBC.
Founded by stand up comic and counselor David Granirer who himself suffers from
bipolar, Stand Up For Mental Health is an award-winning program that teaches folks with mental health and addcition issues how to perform stand up comedy as a way of building confidence and fighting public stigma.
The course is 6 months long. We’ll start out on zoom and then switch to live classes assuming that covid is done by then. Class is on Tuesdays from 11am-2 pm.
You’ll get to develop your own comedy act all about your mental health and addictions recovery journey and meet some great people – it’ll be an awesome experience!!!
Cost is by sliding scale, NO ONE is EVER EVER turned away for financial reasons!
