Pierre is a true professional: funny and insightful. He knows his craft and does it with such ease, and is eager to share his experience with budding comics. I enrolled three times because I truly enjoyed the experience.” — RB

“Pierre’s comedy class is great! He makes stand-up accessible and helps each student find their unique point of view, build a six-minute set and get comfortable performing. I learned a lot from him and am proud of what he helped me learn and do.” — JB
