StandUp Comedy Workshop in NYC

Have you ever considered taking a course in standup comedy?

Even if you don't want to be the next Jerry Seinfeld, it could certainly bring an added dimension to your speaking career.

What if someone you knew was already signed up ... would you sign up then?
Well, Dave Wheeler, Div.A Governor, has signed up for the Feb. course in Stand Up Comedy at the American Comedy Institute in New York City...
Want to join him? See details below.

Even if you don't want to take the course... tune in to this blog to hear when Dave's standup set is scheduled at the Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan. (He has to do it as part of the course.)

The ACI website also includes some good articles about editing / trimming your speech ("set" in comedy terms) and the full details for the course are ....
