"Rick Crom was the first person to believe in me as a comic. He taught me the meaning of writing a good joke and a great set and for that i am forever in his debt. When I first met Rick i didn't even know what an open mic was and now my career is starting to take off all within a year thanks to Rick's coaching and his guidance."

I took Rick's class in the summer of 2010 and, in just eight sessions I went from being a nervous wreck to performing with more ease than I ever thought possible. Classes are laid back, but a lot of work ends up getting done, and each student is given ample time to rehearse already written material or test out new jokes. I highly recommend it to anyone trying to get started in the world of stand up. -ANDREW KELLY
Rick's class enabled me to learn the arsenal of tools needed to perform stand up comedy
in an atmosphere of fun, encouragement and humor.
The class provided the perfect forum for growth, experimentation, and networking, all while learning key tricks of the trade and tools for optimum punchline delivery!
The class gave me the opportunity to develop my comedic style and voice in an organic way. By studying successful performers, the art of jokewriting and joketelling, and the elements of performance, I feel confident that I can stand on stage and make my audience laugh. This class gave me the confidence, experience and know-how to start my comedy career on the right foot.

I moved to New York from Australia after being a comic for 3 years. I came to Rick to iron out all the bad habits or ‘creases’ that I still had as a new comic and to prepare me for a transition into the NYC comedy scene. Even with 3 years of experience behind me, Rick has been able to give me priceless information to help me with my writing, structure but more then anything, with my delivery techniques. His advise from years of experience has helped slow down my performance BUT made my jokes come faster and improved my set to no end.
