Stand-Up Comedy & Storytelling Class Saturdays 4:00-6:00p Starting April 6th

Beginning Saturday April 6th at 4:00 (class is 6 weeks)
COST: $200 (class size capped at 14)
Teacher: Clark Taylor

This course is designed to help students realize their dreams of stand-up comedy, storytelling, or just becoming more comfortable on any stage as a performer.  The goal of this class is to improve personal storytelling style and trying to create a fully realized comedy set in a supportive environment.  Students will be given time to perform in each class with the purpose of getting them comfortable with the form.  Sensitive, open-minded notes will help guide the student’s growth and development.  The class will culminate with a stand-up show at TNM in front of an audience.

About the teacher:
Clark moved to San Francisco and became a part of the comedy boom of the 1980’s and continued as a headliner into the early 2000’s before becoming a full time screenwriter and member of the WGAW.  Starting as an open mic’er at a variety of clubs (including the legendary Holy City Zoo), Clark developed a character-based act which brought some local and national success, headlining various road gigs and appearing on several TV shows in San Francisco, New York and Canada. He headlined the Catch a Rising Star in Boston, was the “house” headliner of Cobb’s Comedy Club, headlined road gigs across the country for a decade, was a regular on the Alex Bennett radio show in San Francisco and opened for musical acts such as Jerry Lee Lewis and the Temptations.  Along the way, Clark performed alongside every major comic in San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles and New York featuring comics such as Robin Williams, Carol Liefer, Jake Johannsen, and Marc Maron.  He also worked with a young W. Kamau Bell in San Francisco on a one man show at The Marsh.  Once in L.A., Clark hired on with old friend Rob Schneider and Adam Sandler as a screenwriter and producer at Touchstone Pictures and wrote and produced on a number of projects with various producers in town.  After leaving Los Angeles, Clark returned to college to earn a Masters degree in History after which he co-wrote and co-produced an environmental documentary, which included writing and voice-directing the great Tom Kenny (“Sponge Bob”) in an animated short film which won several awards.

The La Croix Comedy Fest is This Weekend

the la croix comedy festival + comf

Since 1981 La Croix has been the talk of the beverage world. Their ingredient list and sales records are both well kept secrets. Their flavors are as likely to be discussed at black tie galas as well as rowdy college house parties. No other liquid is as universally beloved and, supposedly, hated as La Croix.

Now the canned carbonated beverage is getting what it deserves. A night of comedy dedicated to its existence.


From the official festival event listing:

Everyone knows the flavors of La Croix are derived from the natural essence oils extracted from the named fruit used in each of the LaCroix flavors. But did you know that there’s a comedy festival dedicated to the iconic canned soda?

The La Croix Comedy Festival is a night of comedy inspired by a certain flavored carbonated water. Arrive early to peruse the carbonated museum of art, get your picture taken in the flavored water selfie booth, enjoy the only live comedy show completely dedicated to the only beverage dedicated to revolutionary natural flavors.

LaCroix or La Croix is an American carbonated water distributed by National Beverage Corporation. Sales records have never been publicly released, but market research suggests La Croix holds a 30 percent market share in sparkling water sales in the United States, double that of its main competitor, Perrier.

Happy Birthday Comedy Show this Saturday


Okay, what’s better than having a birthday? Once you have your answer you can move on to the next question. Okay, ready? What’s better than a really, really good comedy show?

If you answered “I don’t know” or “nothing” or you were too excited to really stop and answer the questions, don’t fret, friend.

Because absolutely nothing is better than a birthday and for sure nothing is better than a really really really good comedy show, we thought we would combine all of the above during a very special weekend.

In short – It’s a comedy show about birthdays and everyone is invited! Here’s what we got planned

  • Free cake for all (til it lasts, of course)
  • Free admission for any March birthdays (just bring your I.D. or a recent photo of you wearing a birthday hat and blowing out some candles)
  • DJ after party to follow (our patio is SO fun)

Sounds pretty good, right? Agreed, SO – scoop up your Tickets asap (unless you’re a March baby, of course) and bring your crew to TNM this weekend.

Hosted by TNM co-founder Chris Trew (as seen on Comedy Central, America’s Got Talent, MTV, GQ Magazine) and featuring comedians from The New Movement.
