  Articles About Stand-Up Comedy by Greg Dean - standup teacher
The purpose of teaching comedy techniques is to remove the instructor's opinions about what is funny or acceptable from the process, and to replace them with consistent fundamental techniques of writing and performing.

Therefore, the stand-up comedy classroom-environment needs to be a safe place where students can feel free to present and test all ideas without the teacher's instant condemnation about the nature of their content.
