Thank you so much for your interest in our classes! As we recently announced, we are undergoing a transition from The Nerdist School to The Ruby LA. We’ve put a temporary hold on class registrations on this page while we finalize the registration page on our new site. All of the classes listed below will still be proceeding as planned, so you can still check out the teacher bios and class dates. If you’re interested in registering for any of the classes below, please email:

Our comedy training focuses on teaching you 3 core principals:

1. ACTING: communicating realism to an audience and living in the moment.
2. SUBTEXT: communicating what’s happening underneath a scene.
3. VOICE: having the ability and confidence to express yourself on stage.
