How To Do Comedy:

A Workshop for Girls & “Others.”


“GOLD’s course left me thinking, ‘Comedy IS a place for me. I can do this’ — and that’s priceless.”

Holly Brockwell, Gadgette

“GOLD is serving up detailed and engaging lessons on the fundamentals of comedy, delivered with hilarity and enthusiasm by veteran comedian Elsa Waithe.”

— Sarah Alexander, Ms. Magazine

“Using examples like Tig Notaro, nerdy comedian Naomi Ekperigin, and some classic Ellen Degeneres stand-up, the five-module course should get you from being snarky with your friends to slaying on stage.” 

— Kat Armstrong, Brit + Co.

I have been in love with GOLD for a little while now, but this course really took things to the next level. Truly could not have been happier with the course. All the videos and writing assignments were so helpful, and they made the idea of being funny feel all the more approachable. I especially loved the Video Inspo at the end of each lesson — they motivated me to make it through every module IN A DAY.

This course is great for explaining the "how" of comedy. Sure, folks tell you that you're funny, but how do you actually write jokes? What kinds of jokes are there? What are *you* the funniest at? This course is fun and encouraging and tells you how to turn your funny into a real world stand-up "set," at a very affordable price.
