Alex Stokes

In 2017, Alex began teaching the first ever Stand Up Comedy courses at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The first class, "Stand Up Comedy: A Crash Course" was a huge success, with 19 students. The course is a Non Credit class lasting 6 weeks, one night per week for 2 hours. The first 5 classes are in a classroom, with the final being an "optional" performance at a local venue in front of a real audience. In the Fall of 2018, Alex will be teaching a second class called "Stand Up Comedy: The Open Mic Circuit." This class will be a more advanced version of the crash course. It will consist of 1 night in a classroom, followed by 5 performances at 5 different venues. Below you will find a link as well as a schedule of upcoming classes.
