The World of the Stand-Up Comedian

The World of the Stand-Up Comedian – January 22, 2013


  • Idea:  In this session we explore the world of stand-up comedy.   We will hire a local stand-up comic to do 30 minutes of comedy.   The next 30 minutes we can ask her/him questions about what it’s like to be a stand up comic.  This could be done in the library by creating a coffee shop setting.
  • Books to Read:  Jerry Seinfeld’s book Seinfeld Language, Steve Martin’s Born Standing:  A Comic’s Life, and Tina Fey’s Bossy Pants.
  • Venue:  Fremont Main Library
  • Date:  January 22, 2013
  • Leader:  The stand up comedian will lead this session – or someone locally who has studied stand up comedy.   There are several Stand Up comedy centers in the Bay Area:  ComedySportz, Improv Comedy Fremont, Mountain View, Comedy Nights, and The Minorities Up to name a few.
  • Team:  Shirley Gilbert, Kathy Garfinkle, Genevieve Angelides, Florence Silver.
  • Read about our stand-up comedy night.
