Sunday Afternoons for Kids: A Guy Walks Into the Hammer...

  • to This is a past program

Ages 8–13

Stand-up comedy is the Mount Everest of phobias, but rest easy: it’s not as hard as it looks. Students will watch and study professional comedians, learning how to write jokes and turn them into stand-up routines to be performed at the end of the workshop. Ryan Stayton is a comedian living in Los Angeles. His pursuits include writing, stand-up, and improv.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.

The Hammer’s free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, are designed for groups of up to 20 students. Reservations are encouraged. Please visit or call 310-305-8418.
