    Testimonials on Keenan’s classes:

    Keenan Steiner’s comedy class “Make your jokes about YOU” was so much fun! I just started writing in November, this class took my brain dump and gave me editing, structure and delivery tools to develop 7 minutes of authentic content I’m proud to perform. The feedback each week, in class and via email in between classes, as well as the stage time was so helpful for an aspiring, novice stand up. Our entire class killed their sets, credit to Keenan’s coaching. It was so much fun to see everyone’s work come together under the spotlight. Highly recommend. I will be back for more! - Lindsey

    "Keenan's class was key to me building the confidence to give stand up comedy a try. Keenan's feedback was always helpful and constructive. Thanks to the class I have been able to get up and perform on stage multiple times." - Greg
