    Never been on stage, but always dreamed of being in showbiz? Done a few open mic nights and think you’re ready? Regardless of your skill-level, students can bring their best jokes to the Boston Center for Adult Education and workshop their material into a 90-second usable standup routine that they will then perform in front of an audience of peers and a panel of judges to see what lucky student will get their “big break” at the hallowed Wilbur Theatre. Got the jitters yet?

    The "Closet Comics Big Break" workshop on Saturday, November 6th, 2010 from 2:00PM – 4:30PM will be taught by homegrown improv artists and standup comics led by “Dean of Students” and Professional Comedian Tony V (who’s not only toured the world as a headliner, but shared the stage with everyone from Jay Leno to Adam Sandler).
