Positively Funny, Inc. Comedy Institute
Here at the Positively Funny, Inc. Comedy Institute, we pride ourselves on our commitment to a quality education of which YOU can be proud. We have trained the minds of many, many very talented individuals such as the 2012 winner of the Annual World's Greatest Goatee Competition, the woman who figured out the meaning of life then promptly forgot it, and the first person to ever pull off the Mullet haircut.
Our classes are perfect for beginners, experienced players, people who love Improv, and people who hate the Kardashians. Whether you are a teen or an adult, you will have fun in our classes. We offer classes in Improv Comedy, Comedy Writing, Stage Acting, Stand-Up Comedy, and new Digital Comedy Short Writing - so there is something for everyone. Even you. So sign up for a class and see what all the fuss is about.
