Nantucket Comedy Festival Presents Stand Up & Learn

Thursday, Friday & Saturday, January 17–19, the Nantucket Comedy Festival presents the first Stand Up & Learn Winter Workshop and Professional Comedy Series of the new year.  Executive Director Kevin Flynn and will be on island to conduct the workshops for Stand Up & Learn, a comedy education program for young people ages 8–18.  An initiative of the Nantucket Comedy Festival, Stand Up & Learn enables island children to build self-confidence while learning to create and perform original stand-up comedy.  We had ten students make comedy magic at our December show at the Boys and Girls Club. 

Workshops for the new session will take place in the Dreamland Studio Theater, 17 South Water Street, on Thursday and Friday, January 17–18 from 3:30–5 p.m. and on Saturday, January 19 from 10 a.m.–12 p.m., followed by a children’s performance at 5 p.m. put on by the workshop participants.  Please sign up soon, as this class will be limited to a maximum of fifteen children.  All children’s workshops are free to participants. Saturday evening at 7:00, a professional stand up comedy show (for ages 18 and over) in the Dreamland’s main theater will feature Graig Murphy.
