With Charity Sade
In this 6-week course with instructor Charity Sade, young adult cancer survivors will learn how to prepare, polish and perform a five-minute comedic storytelling piece or stand-up comedy set by working on timing, delivery, story structure, and comedy writing.
Each week, the class will be led by Charity Sade, and a guest comic, who will run through writing exercises, performance skills and techniques (e.g., how to hold a mic, where to stand, etc). The attendees will also get the opportunity to “workout” their material during each session, with guided feedback from the instructors and their peers. At the end of the course, there will be a comedy showcase on April 11 featuring the class members. This event will also raise funds for the Smith Center’s DC Young Adult Cancer Community programming.
*Note: There is a required registration fee of $45 to enroll in this course and enrollment is limited to 12 participants. Classes begin on Sunday, February 24th and are weekly on Sundays for 6 weeks from 2:00-4:00pm. The final class is Sunday, March 31st. Participants are expected to participate in all six classes and to perform at the comedy showcase (Date TBD).

About Charity Sade
Charity is a 31-year-old stand-up comedian and writer. She currently resides in Washington, D.C. and is living out her dream of being financially poor, but spiritually rich. Although she is a newbie to the comedy scene, she has performed at Stand-Up NY, Greenwich Comedy Club, and the D.C. Drafthouse Comedy Theater.
She has always used humor to get through difficult moments in her life, including her breast cancer diagnosis at age 27. She has since kicked breast cancer’s ass and often talks about her experiences during and after treatment in her writing and stand-up routines.
Her superpower is being able to make you laugh and cringe at the same time. Recently, she starred in a British reality tv show called, “Too Ugly For Love?”, on TLC UK. Since, she has decided that while she may be too ugly for love, she isn’t too ugly for comedy.
