Comedians and late-night talk show hosts Adam Carolla and Jay Leno have teamed up with producers of Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp to launch the first-ever Comedy Fantasy Camp. It will offer aspiring stand-up comedians and writers the opportunity to work with some of the most successful talents in the industry. This four-day event will be held in Hollywood, CA in mid-October.
In addition to Leno and Carolla, the camp will also include comics Alonzo Bodden and Brad Williams. As well as writers Jeff Astroff (“Friends”), Liz Astroff (“King of Queens”), and Steve Basilone (“The Goldbergs”). Along with showrunner Kevin Hench (“Last Man Standing”) and many more comedic talents to be announced.
During this Comedy Fantasy Camp, attendees will participate in mentoring sessions, Q&A sessions, and masterclasses with comedians and writers. Writers will collaborate on creating skits, guided by experienced TV writers. With the goal of seeing their work performed by aspiring comics. Campers will develop their own stand-up routines and perform them on stage during a live show at the Hollywood Improv. They will also be given the opportunity to pitch their own ideas to a panel of producers and writers, to help provide some real-world experience.
“It’s time we bring that same energy and access to comedy fans,” David Fishof, founder of Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, said. “This is a golden opportunity for anyone aspiring to break into comedy, whether as a stand-up comic or a TV writer.”
“We are thrilled to bring the Comedy Fantasy Camp to life,” Carolla added. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for attendees to learn the ropes from seasoned comedians and writers, and to get an inside look at the comedy industry.”
Attendees at all levels, from beginner to advanced are welcome. And while the Comedy Fantasy Camp is geared towards adults, all ages are welcome. Comedy Fantasy Camp will run from Thursday, October 12th through Sunday, October 15th. You can reserve your spot here.
