Have you ever wanted to try your hand at stand-up comedy, but don’t have a clue where to start? Well, thanks to Hashtag Comedy you can start now!

Grow your confidence, stage presence and comedy chops (or hey, just come and have fun and learn something new) at the ShadowboxLive’s Backstage Bistro (503 South Front Street Columbus) starting Saturday Mar 31 from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. Classes are every Saturday for six weeks.
