ASAP Comedy Bootcamp Application
Comedy Bootcamp is the first-ever stand up comedy class for veterans, service members, and military family members. Led by professional comics, the seven-week course develops the comedy writing and performing skills of participants through hands-on instruction and group feedback. Comedy Bootcamp culminates with a graduation show at a local comedy club, with each participant delivering a five minute set to a public audience. Upon graduating from the course, alumni have the opportunity to continue practice and perform through our Veteran Open Mics, partner performance, workshops, and Alumni Mentor Program.

To be considered as a participant in ASAP's Comedy Bootcamp program, please fill out this survey to the best of your ability. Due to the high volume of applications that ASAP receives, we are not able to grant admission to all applicants the first time they apply. Please use this application to tell us about yourself and your interest in the Comedy Bootcamp course. This is your opportunity to demonstrate why you want to be involved in this program. Learning about your interests, passion, and background will help us put together a class with an array of perspectives and backgrounds.

Finally, please note that we are implementing an ongoing Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) system throughout 2019. In order to participate in the class, all participants must complete a brief pre- and post-class assessment that measures the effects of ASAP's programming on skill-development and well-being. Your participation in our internal monitoring efforts will help us continuously learn from and improve our programs. If you have any questions about our M&E system, please do not hesitate to contact us at hello@asapasap.org. Thank you for your interest!
