Lewiston Stand-Up Students Prepare To Spread Laughter [Lewiston Adult Education]

From left to right, Ivy Moser, Frank Spurr, Roger Poulin, Cecile Thornton, Anita Alef, instructor Dawn Hartill, Sean Crane and Stephen Amoroso. Seated are Amanda Kinsey and Chris Kinney.

 Adult education students will put their skills to the test by telling jokes in front of an audience at Guthrie's Restaurant & Café in Lewiston on April 8.

Members of the Stand-up Comedy Workshop class at Lewiston Adult Education have met for weeks with instructor Dawn Hartill to polish their stories and find ways to develop them into a series of jokes. Hartill, who has performed throughout New England, was a member of the first Stand-up Comedy Workshop class.

The show will be held on Monday, April 8, at 6 p.m. at Guthrie's Restaurant & Café on 115 Middle St. in Lewiston. It is open to the public at no charge.

Students meet for one evening a week at Lewiston High School. Hartill brings a microphone, microphone stand and amplifier in order for students to become comfortable with the technical setup in order to speak before an audience along with helping them hone deliveries and punchlines.

Comedians have made visits to the class to provide feedback, including Harold “Tuck” Tucker. Tucker also teaches the fall Improv class for Lewiston Adult Education
