Why a Tight 5?

Get booked

Your tight 5 is what bookers look at to determine if they want to pay you for your comedy.

Write your hour

A tight 5 gives you a solid foundation on which to build your first special. Hours are built five minutes at a time. Once you know how to build one tight 5, it’s just “rinse and repeat” until you write your first special.

Get a late-night

The Tight 5 is the standard for a late-night set. It’s what you will need to get on Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Conan.

Essential Comedy Skills

You will also be building essential skills to jump-start your comedy career. Here are just a few:
Overcome Stage Fright
This is a biggy. Most comics waste 1-2 years mustering up the courage to go on stage—precious time that could have been spent honing the craft. When they finally do take the plunge, crowds can sense their nervous energy, and even the best-written jokes fall flat.
Perfect the Fundamentals
Gain a thorough understanding of the different tricks and tools in the comedian’s bag. Avoid common pitfalls and watch your cute one-liners transform into fully fleshed-out, hilarious bits.
Elevate Your Punchlines
Learn how to craft punchlines for maximum impact. Our coaches will push you to move beyond low-hanging fruit and won’t let you skate by on shock value. You’ll write actual punchlines that pack a powerful punch...Go figure.
Find Your Voice
It can take comedians decades to find their voice. We’ve taken deliberate steps to create a tight-knit family of students and coaches who will give you a 360-degree view of who you are on and off stage. This process will reveal aspects of your personality that will make up your future stage persona.
Perfect Your Performance
Comedy is more than just the right sequence of words. It’s not just what you’re saying, but how you’re saying it. Our coaches will teach you how to use your whole body to express the emotional reality of your jokes in the most effective—and funny—way possible.
Learn the Business
It’s called show business for a reason. Too many comics flounder because they focus on the show and ignore the business. In this program, we teach you how to balance the two, and you will get to ask all of your business questions to an actual booker.
Get in the "Inner Circle"
In comedy your network is your net worth. Most opportunities come from other comedians. When you join the accelerator program, you become a lifetime member of an elite alumni. Comedians who have poured their most valuable resources into their passion. These are the names you will one day see on marquees around the world. You will want to be in their inner circle when the time is right.
