The StarDome has partnered with famed Positively Funny Improv and their PFI Comedy Institute to bring comedy classes to our venue. PFI Comedy Institute is the only in-depth comedy training facility in Birmingham with professionally developed curriculum. We offer classes in:
- Sketch Comedy Writing,
- Stand-Up Comedy and
- Digital Comedy Shorts.
Basically, if it is about comedy - Positively Funny teaches it. And now, you can take classes right here in the newly renovated StarDome.
The backgrounds of the instructors range from the famed Second City in Chicago to SAK Comedy Lab in Orlando and even some home-grown talent from here in Birmingham. When you choose to learn at the PFI Comedy Institute, you are getting the best from several comedy worlds. Our curriculum is developed by tenured professionals in the industry and is delivered in an environment that is safe and nurturing. We offer classes year-round for both adults and teens, as well as specialized summer camps for youth and teens. We also offer classes that integrate special needs students with our traditional students.
We offer traditional 8-week class terms with each class 2-hours in length. We also offer more intense classes for certain classes that are 4 sessions for 4 hours each. Our intense classes are usually offered on weekends. We also offer "distance learning" opportunities for our writing and stand-up classes.
Our students turn to The StarDome and the PFI Comedy Institute to amp up their funny. The StarDome is known as a star-maker and now with in-house classes, we can help you reach the level you are aiming for.
