“I was a veteran actor and broadcast journalist, who still had apprehension about being told to make people laugh on cue.  That is, until I took Jonathan’s class.  Now I know how to be a stand up comedian (and how to be a better business speaker.)  - Dr. Leigh-Davis. Retired law professor and TV personality.
"Because of Jonathan’s class, I can say I’ve performed a stand up comedy set, and most importantly, people laughed at the jokes! I was pumped for two days from the excitement in one of the top comedy shows in Los Angeles.” - Claudia Amador
“Jonathan is a great coach. His feedback was very insightful and his words were always encouraging I went from no jokes to a whole routine in six weeks. ” If you want to know how to be a comedian the person to see is Mr. Solomon - Cassio Goldshidt Goldschmidt
What Jonathan’s students are saying about School for Stand Up!
“I never laughed harder or had more fun, then when I was collaborating and performing with Jonathan and the rest of the class during his stand up comedy classes. And, although I’ve written comedy professionally, Jonathan had ideas and lessons I’d never considered that paid off big time. Jonathan probed and prodded me, (not unlike an alien abduction), and made me funnier than I already am. He's either a genius or from Pluto -Justin Ezzi -Award winning songwriter and author
Jonathan is a fantastic joke writer - when it came to helping me improve the material for my set, I couldn’t have been happier. Take his class! The best stand up comedy classes around.
- Chima Yoshida
