Maxi Witrak is a working actor and comedian living in Los Angeles, CA. She has performed around the world and appears regularly at the Comedy Store and Hollywood Improv in Los Angeles. She has taught comedy to different levels of students in both a group and individual setting.
Whether you have never set foot on a stage or have several years experience, you will get feedback and attention tailored to helping you find your next level.
Come with material you’re working on, questions you have about your own goals or methods, or simply show up ready to do some out-loud writing and generate some joke ideas together! Session to session, we can adjust the focus to:
-exploring your voice and personal delivery style
-organizing your set
-refreshing the basics of joke structure
-review of your writing/workshopping process
-structuring of new or old bits
-feedback on new or old material
-discussing next steps and developing a strategy to achieve your next goal
Past Student Testimonials
My students come from all ages, backgrounds, and level of performing experience; from seasoned performer to never having visited a comedy club.
Some have decades of experience in the entertainment industry and are already professional writers, editors, animators, producers, filmmakers, actors and so on.
After class they have gone on to perform on iconic stages, share the stage with legendary comedians, tour the country, produce and book their own standup shows, and much more.
Let's take your strengths and apply them to something new!

“Maxi’s an incredible coach and teacher. She has an instinct for seeing each student’s voice and helping them to find their unique kind of funny. She does so in a way that not only makes her students feel comfortable, but also inspires them to be brave and go for the big swings that lead to big laughs.”

"I'm so glad I decided to take your level 1 class this summer. It took me a couple months to get going but after a few open mics, an audition and 3 booked shows I must say I'm hooked. I absolutely love it! I needed something to light me up again and stand up comedy has done that. Thank you for making the classes easy to understand and a lot less scary than I thought they would be!"
"My standup journey has taken me places I never expected, and I feel really proud of the progress I’ve made in such a short amount of time.
I now host a show weekly in Hollywood, allowing me to book and give stage time to the super talented friends I’ve made both in your class and beyond!"
