The Newbie Program
Newbie admissions are currently closed, but request to join our mailing list via the Contact Tab receive updates on our future programming!
Newbie Cohorts have been a cornerstone of WSU NYC's work since the beginning. Offered 3-4 times a year, this curriculum takes students through stand up basics, writing exercises, tips on navigating
New York's comedy scene, and culminates in developing a tight five to be performed in a class showcase at the Kraine Theatre.
We use the toolbox approach, introducing students to a different style of writing and performance each week of the program, so that students can best find their unique comedic voices.
For the sliding scale price of $80-$150, students will receive:
Six weeks of instruction and individualized feedback, resulting in a tight five
A spot in the class showcase
Graduation benefits, including access to our network of alumni, and future performance and learning opportunities
