ABOUT WESTSAYEED!

West Side Comedy Club, is owned by Eugene Ashe and Thomas Wilson, the duo who brought you Playa Betty’s and Réunion Surf Bar.

It is the brainchild of Eugene and his wife Nina who met while working together at Caroline’s Comedy Club in the early 90’s. It was an awesome time for comedy and they were there to witness some of today’s biggest names right at the beginning of their careers. (Louie C.K.; Dave Attell; Wanda Sykes; Dave Chappelle; and Jim Gaffigan), to name drop a few!

The Club is managed and booked by Gina Savage, a comedy veteran who worked at Broadway Comedy Club, Caroline’s and Comix and as a booker and manager with Barry Katz. Nina Ashe worked at Gotham Comedy Club for over 10 years and after retiring from the club, continued to use her experience from there to handle large parties and private events for Réunion Surf Bar.

Combining their years of comedy club, bar, and restaurant experience with their sheer love of stand-up and a reverence for comedians, Eugene and Nina are opening West Side Comedy Club. Their goal is to bring the fun, exciting, and sexy vibe they felt when they first started working in comedy clubs, to the cool, intimate space of West Side Comedy Club. They want to create a place where customers will love to laugh and comics will always want to perform and hang out.

Improv and Stand-Up Comedy help students discover their best selves building self confidence, creative writing, critical thinking and public speaking. We offer weekly classes Winter, Spring and Fall, plus Summer Camps. We also have teachers at schools, camps and community centers on weekends and after school. Each session starts with Improvisation, playing games that are a ton of fun while teaching valuable life skills. These are the same games we play with corporate groups to develop better leaders, team building, sales, service etc. For our public sessions we include Stand-Up Comedy, taking stories of experience and observation, then crafting original comedy routines. Each session ends with a performance showcase of original and improvised comedy skits completely created by the students. The classes and workshops integrate perfectly with cultural arts, language arts and character building/guidance programming.

NATIONAL SMILE DAY #NationalSmileDay MAY 31 #worldsmileday OCTOBER 4

NATIONAL SMILE DAY  is May 31st. WORLD SMILE DAY  is October 4th.
From Walt Frasier, artistic director of EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH Off Broadway Improv
smile
Walt Frasier on Billions 4.10 May 2019. Frasier has also appeared on Blue Bloods, Royal Pains, Friends of the People, Letterman etc
In every Improv workshop I leave students with two messages
1) You have homework. (groans) Every morning before even getting out of bed, start the day with a smile. You know how you smile when someone else makes you feel good. Turns out it works both ways. Physically forcing a smile can make you feel better. You physically squeeze out the juice in our face that make you feel good. I know, it sounds gross, but it works. AND when you walk into a room with a smile, most people smile back. There will always be that one that say “Why are they smiling? What’s wrong with them.” That person will judge you no matter what you do so let’s just ignore that person. When you wait for the world to make you happy it will disappoint every time. When you set out to make the world smile, simply by leading by example, rewards flood your way.

2) Every time you get on stage, or read in class, public speaking gets easier. Every time you let your fear win, hiding in the shadows gets easier as well. Push that comfort zone just a little bit every day and see that fear become manageable, eventually maybe even disappear. Having the fear is beyond normal. But letting the fear control you leads to many missed opportunities.
July

NATIONAL SMILE DAY is EVERY DAY!

YES AND… #1 rule in Improv is to ALWAYS say YES, followed by AND…, a statement that supports everything our teammates offer and builds a scene forward, offering details to which our team can YES AND.. us in return
LISTEN and RESPOND – suspend judgement, don’t plan, rather simply LISTEN deeply to our team, then trust ourselves and our team.
Playing Improv games develops public speaking and self confidence. Fear of public speaking is #1 in the world, more that fear of death itself. THIS alone is the most important way we attack the Bully problem. A confidence person will less likely become a bully OR victim. Bullies seek out easy targets. They rarely take on a confidence individual. However, bullies themselves are most often overcompensating for their own insecurities.  So by teaching self confidence we eliminate BOTH trends. By becoming confidence public speakers and over coming social anxieties of one on one interactions we empower individuals to ask when they need help.

PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY – a corporate concept that is a few decades old but very important in the past 5 years since a study performed by GOOGLE. http://www.corporate-comedy.us/about/psychological-safety-performance-drive-yes-and-improv/ . Studies find that the #1 factor that makes a successful team is psychological safety. Every person on the team feels a value to the team. Team mates support each other. BASICALLY – EVERYTHING we learn doing Improvisation! Our mission is to bring psychological safety into every classroom in New York and beyond!!!
