Our project does 4 things...
We create inspiring courses where you discover a safe environment and new friends. Where you develop and hone stand up material, in a loving, clear way, on stuff that matters.
We showcase our course participants, as well as the best of today's and tomorrow's stand up comedy on sustainability issues.
We help stand up comics work with the best scientists, economists & sustainability experts.
We offer our stand up comics to major sustainability events and conferences.
Our participants include improvisers, comedians, NASA climate scientists, medical researchers, architects, military servicemen and women, and people like you. Here's what some of them say:
PETER, THE NASA CLIMATE SCIENTIST SAYS...
"I need to reach people about the deadly serious impacts of climate change. But I don't want to drive them away with gloom and doom. Belina and my wonderfully supportive classmates helped me discover the hilarity in my work and connect with the audience about something that really matters, to me and the world."
KRISTY, THE MILITARY SERVICEWOMAN SAYS
"I absolutely loved the supportive atmosphere and the we're all in it together mentality that was built into our class... I was able to create a solid five minute set and muster the courage to get up on that stage alone. Thank you Belina for starting my stand up journey on a high note!"
MATT, THE COMPUTER ENGINEER SAYS
"... gave me the confidence to get up in front of people, the tools for success in stand up and to break into doing improv. Belina is just an amazing teacher..."

Whether you plan a career on the stand up stage, want to speak more powerfully on issues that matter to you, or just want to build your confidence and presence, no experience of stand up or improvisation is necessary. Register now below.
The introductory course focus on writing and performing stand up comedy, while using the practice of improvisation to help cultivate:
- playfulness and creativity in crafting your material
- confidence and ease on stage, and
- generosity and connection with your audience.
It emphasises creating content that tackles the big issues in a funny, smart and loving way.
In the workshop sessions you will:
- with our support, develop your own 5 minute set of stand up material
- practice connecting with the audience in delightful, powerful and generous ways
- introduce good mic and presentation techniques
- explore positive ways to deal with failure and the unexpected
- at the end of the course, showcase your set live on stage in a theatre
Why do we get out of bed in the morning?
We help people who do good in the world to do that better.
We help people to combine stand up comedy, playfulness, content about stuff that matters, and love.
When combined, these are wildly powerful forces to get important information across.
Join us and stand up for things that matter.
