The Rendezvous Presents:

Learn Standup Comedy: a 4-week course

April 3rd at 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm


The Grotto


$200 – $300



Are you always the funniest one at the party? Have you written out jokes that you’ve been too afraid to try on stage? Are you depressed? Then you may be looking for this class.

Learn how to go from nothing to a performing a 5-min set live onstage from Stephanie Nam, comedian, producer, and not a white dude. Stephanie was inspired to teach this class because one too many white dudes asked her to teach them how to start comedy and she deserves to be paid for that labor.

– Sundays 4/3, 4/10, 4/17, 4/24, from 4-6:30PM (time change to one hour earlier)
– Graduation show: Thursday 4/28, 7pm



This class is aimed at beginners to standup comedy. You do not need any experience to attend although those with some experience are welcome also. The class will require “performing” in front of your peers each week along with homework assignments that will help you to develop your own material. It will end with a performance at a graduation showcase.

This class is open to anyone ages 21+ (due to venue restrictions). Proof of full vaccination is required. The class is capped at 14 students.


The Grotto at the Rendezvous. The grotto is in the basement down one flight of stairs, which is not ADA accessible. The graduation show will be held in the Jewelbox Theater (68 capacity) at the Rendezvous on the ground floor, which is ADA accessible.


Stephanie Nam is a Seattle-based comedian and producer. Her awkward charm has won over tens of people. She is a stereotypical Capricorn and you will see that in the rigor of this course.

Stephanie produces MEN AREN’T FUNNY, JUST A PHASE, and MODEL MINORITY, comedy showcases that highlight underrepresented voices and is a co-producer at the Comedy Nest. She has been in All Jane Comedy Festival and Asian Comedy Festival. You can email her at hello@stephanienam.com with any questions or concerns about this class.


Sliding scale tickets helps keep the class accessible. It is based on what you can afford. No proof is required. $200 is the base rate and paying above the base in the sliding scale helps fund scholarships.
