Princeton Stand-Up Comedy
is always looking for more performers. The great thing about this group, compared with
many other groups on campus, is that there is no set membership for the year. Anyone
is welcome to work on writing material, and each show is open to new performers.
How do we run things?
For the most part, the group is rather informal behind the scenes. First, we put together an e-mail list with everyone who has expressed interest in the group. (There is no commitment necessary to be put on the e-mail list.) When we book a show, we will send out an e-mail with the show details to everyone on the list, and then anyone who is ready and interested in performing will reply. If there is a large response, the officers may choose to hold informal auditions in order to pick out the best performances.
What should I do to get involved?
What if I have never done stand-up before?
We'd strongly encourage anyone who's interested to give it a try. Nearly all of our performers had no prior experience performing stand-up before they came to Princeton. Even though it may seem intimidating, it can be a very fun and rewarding comedic art form. Plus, our officers would be more than happy to meet with you and help you learn how to make your own stand-up act.
