Comedy Boot Camp
Location: Virginia and Metropolitan DC area
Comedy Boot Camp (CB) is the first stand-up comedy class for veterans, service members, military families, and caregivers. The seven-week course curriculum is informed by research into humor’s beneficial effects. This Bob Woodruff Foundation grant will provide CB to 96 military-connected individuals, developing their comedic skills through instruction and workshops to implement original comedic material; and providing stress relief, social support, skill-building, and long-term connections with others. This grant will also measure the impact of ASAP’s interventions on veterans’ skill development, well-being, and resilience.
