Let’s see if the course is a fit for you
I took Kristina’s workshop and can honestly say it was life-changing. Hidden among the practical components of comedic structure, delivery and content memorization were many of Kristina’s jewels of wisdom: the comic’s religious practice of self-awareness, vulnerability training and bravery practice.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Leaders, visionaries, creators, and innovators who want to:
Effectively communicate with humor, truth and resonance.
Create a deeply authentic connection with any audience and relationship.
Doing stand up comedy has NEVER been on my bucket list, And then one day an opportunity presented itself and I thought, “That sounds like fun!” Little did I know that I was walking into the most profound, transformational, challenging workshop of my life. Kristina Hall is a Master Coach in life, in comedy, and in love.
This is the next biggest, fattest, hairiest, most profound leap in your personal development. Whenever we step into the unknown, and we can’t predict the outcome, fear shows up. This uncertainty provides the opportunity for transformation and a deeper understanding of self. And c’mon, that’s why we’re here, isn’t it?
(And you’ll have tremendous support.)
“My job is to listen for what wants to be expressed, support you in designing material that expresses it beautifully, and nudge you a little out of your comfort zone.”
WE ARE HUMAN.
We want to belong. We spend a lot of time trying to manage the perception of our audience, whoever that might be. We’re concerned with being liked, admired and understood, or at the very least not looking like an idiot. So where is our attention? On ourselves.
We focus on the “me” instead of the “us,” and miss out on authentic connection that could mutually inform and inspire. When we’re worried about what others think of us, we can’t be vulnerable, and without vulnerability we can’t connect. And it’s boring.
As you go through the expertly guided process of writing and exploration, you’ll transform whatever blocks your authentic expression. You’ll write hilarious, original material about it and when you share it on stage, the audience has the opportunity to transform it for themselves. The more you reveal your humanity, the more the audience can embrace their own. They love you, fall under your spell and possibly do your bidding (but not in a sinister way.)
And did I mention,
You get to be funny
I’ve taken several of Kristina Hall’s workshops, and I’ve really loved the process. She teaches you to dive deep into your faults and fears, finding what’s ridiculous about you. And THAT is funny stuff. Because what’s wrong with you is probably wrong with a lot of other people, too, but no one else is talking about it.
“I’ve done the work. I’ve known the obstacles; I understand the fear and I’ve transformed it. I’ve humiliated myself by being royally inauthentic, more times than I’d like to remember. I’ve been bored and uninspired for months and years, peddling the same old meaningless shit on stage and in life. And that’s why I created this process: so I could have a reliable, replicable method to authentically express something meaningful, that would leave people feeling something.”
GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT KRISTINA
Kristina brings over a decade in personal development coaching to help others find, cultivate and express their authentic voices. She create Stand Up! The Workshop to connect students with their own inner comic, and walk offstage knowing themselves more deeply. She has the uncanny ability to intuit where students “hide” and challenge them to step into true transformation.
I originally took this workshop during a time of transition and uncertainty, and this course was a breath of fresh air. When I walked on stage the first time I was so afraid. Then I heard the first laugh, then a wall of laughter, and I felt connected with people who connected to me and my truth. It gave me so much confidence, joy and self-acceptance.
Kristina’s workshop was an amazing and totally worthwhile experience all around. Not only did I gain confidence in my ability to make people laugh and be on stage, I was also able to transform several important aspects of my life.
