Scott Blakeman leads our "Engagement Team, " whom we call "Wowzers," as Head of Talent Acquisition and Training.
His decades-long career as a standup, commentator, and instructor makes him the perfect fit for Wowzitude: he knows how to add the sparkle to any conversation, and he's a pro at bringing it out in others.
Scott Blakeman is New York's most popular standup comedy instructor, having taught the Standup Comedy Workshop at The New School in New York for 25 years, and now offers it privately, with group classes and one on one coaching, both in person and via Zoom.
Jon Stewart took Scott Blakeman's class and wrote, "Dear Mr. Blakeman, Thank you for your interest in 'The Daily Show.' We are currently not hiring, but we'll keep your résumé - Wait! Scott Blakeman? Comedy professor emeritus? I would like to congratulate you on 70 years of teaching disgruntled lawyers, aimless psychologists and wise-ass New Jersey bartenders the art of standup. Your class of 1987 first acclimated me to the profoundly humiliating world of standup. It was just what my high self-esteem needed. Be well, sir.“
