Walter from Bronx, New York

My passion is comedy; it's a hard path w/o support. With help I could take classes!

I have an online following already; I want to take this to the next level. Classes in comedy would be an amazing opportunity for me & my passion.

My need and situation

I am a 24 year old aspiring stand-up comedian. I've been unemployed for the past 6 months, and do not have a stable living situation. I am a friendly person who enjoys making people laugh.

My goal is to find employment as a stand-up comedian. I currently have a small following on social media for my comedy skits and would like to be employed in the comedic field.

I need to enroll in comedic classes at Caroline's School of Comedy on Broadway. After completing the classes I would have the opportunity to perform my new stand-up comedy talents on the same stage as countless comedy legends.

Meeting this need will help me because completing these formal comedic classes will help me sharpen my skills so that I can land a job as a comedian and obtain stable housing. I have been doing comedy skits for several years now, but have been unemployed for the past 6 months. Once I complete the classes at Caroline's School of Comedy I'll be able to secure employment in the comedic field.
