Recent Testimonials:

Just want to send a heartfelt thanks for my 6-week journey. Standup is something I wanted to try for 10 years and I’m thankful to Cool Beans Comedy for guiding the way and helping me make that dream come true. Your class genuinely changed my life.
The class taught me a great deal and I appreciate that Cool Beans Comedy has cultivated a positive, supportive atmosphere for each performer to hone his or her craft while having fun. 
I’ve been struggling with a panic disorder which has made it really hard for me to perform on stage without having a panic attack these past few years, but I finally feel like I’m ready to delivery the funny.
