Comedy Central has recently launched a new online school for wannabe stand-up comedians. The Crash Course in Comedy is designed by professional stand-up comedy coaches and is presented by Ted Alexandro (from The Late Show and Comedy Central Presents).
The comedy classes are presented in broadband video and will offer interactive assignments where you can build your own virtual comedian (see screenshot below). There will be 10 instructional comedy videos starting with Lesson 1, What is a stand up comedian.
