WORK-STUDY INTERNSHIPS

Dallas Comedy Club is thrilled to offer an internship program for individuals who are looking to get more involved in our community in a fun, exciting, and supportive environment. Our internships offer opportunities for students to earn free tuition for one 6 or 8-week class in exchange for work done at the theater, training center, or during special events. We give strong preference to current DCC students who have completed Level 1 in any of our programs and have been recommended by a DCC instructor- but don’t let that stop you from applying! Even if you haven’t completed a Level 1 class, we still want to hear from you! Those with a passion for people, production, and all things comedy are encouraged to apply.

Dallas Comedy Club is currently looking to fill the following intern positions:

HOST INTERN:

Host Interns are responsible for hosting shows one night per week for eight weeks. Responsibilities include educating and engaging audience members on shows, classes, corporate workshops, and everything else that goes on here at Dallas Comedy Club; all while maintaining high energy and keeping that particular evening’s programming on track. Additionally, Host Interns will work hand in hand with the Box Office and House Manager to ensure all cast and crew have a smooth load-in and load-out, as well as problem solve any last-minute issues that might arise. APPLY HERE!

CLUB INTERN:

In addition to being some of the first front-of-house individuals our audience will interact with, our Club Interns are essential to the success of our theater. Club Intern duties vary by need and include (but are not limited to) managing the box office, directing patrons throughout the venue, clearing the theater between shows, closing up the theater, and more. Club Interns should have a true passion for people with a strong desire to help those who may be visiting the club for the first time (or even the hundredth time). Additionally, Club Interns will work hand in hand with the House Manager to ensure the theater is clean, patrons are happy, and the night runs as smoothly as possible. APPLY HERE!

TECH INTERN:

Truly one of the most essential roles of any theater production is the role of the tech. Tech Interns will work with our DCC approved technicians to learn all the ins and outs of the technical side of the theater. Tech Interns should already know or have a willingness to learn how to operate the lighting switchboard, the sound system, and even how to project videos and images through the projector in both of our theater spaces. Tech Interns are responsible for knowing how to turn on and boot up the computer(s) used to control the lighting. Additionally, they should know some basic programming commands and will actively participate in the light check held before each performance. Tech Interns will be required to attend all technical rehearsals and performances for at least one show per week for eight weeks. APPLY HERE!

STREET TEAM INTERN:

The true feet-on-the-ground workers of our theater, Street Team Interns help with both internal and external theater promotional efforts. These efforts can range from handing out flyers, to cold calling organizations to discuss our corporate workshops, to hanging posters in designated off-site locations. Street Team Interns should be the definition of a ‘people person’, with a passion for talking to potentially new students, audience members, or corporations. Each week, the Street Team Interns will be given a printed schedule, with all listed duties, and appropriate promotional materials and will be required to complete their assigned duties each week for eight weeks. APPLY HERE!

SOCIAL MEDIA & CONTENT CREATION INTERN:

Social Media & Content Creation Interns are an essential part of our day-to-day, week to week, even year to year business. Social Media & Content Creation Interns play an important role in educating the public about upcoming shows, specials events, and other exciting Dallas Comedy Club news. It is imperative for the public to be kept well informed of the different shows and classes we offer, but even more so, that they feel they are a part of our community. Our social media accounts aren’t just a spot for advertising our curriculum or programming, instead, it’s a place for the Dallas comedy community to come together for bits, videos, even inside jokes. Responsibilities include curating content for regular postings (5x per week per channel) on all DCC social media accounts, as well as staying on top of any private or direct messages we may receive on those social media accounts. APPLY HERE!

PHOTOGRAPHY INTERN:

Another essential member of the DCC team, the Photography Intern takes photos and/or videos of Dallas Comedy Club related people and activities (shows, talent, events, etc) to be featured in our social media posts, website, and beyond! Photography Interns should already have a camera and a desire to expand and utilize their talents in a new way. DCC’s Photography Intern is expected to attend 5-8 (depending on need) assigned photoshoots and produce high-quality, professionally edited photos. APPLY HERE!

BLOG INTERN:

Blog Interns play an important role in educating the public about upcoming shows, special events, and other exciting Dallas Comedy Club news. As a Blog Intern, your words might be some of the first that new students or audience members read, so strong writing skills are a major plus for this position! Blog Interns will also need some computer skills, specifically regarding WordPress- but if you learn fast and are up for a challenge, that might work, too. Responsibilities include producing one assigned blog post (subject to revision) per week over the course of eight weeks (due each Monday). Your content should be timely, relevant, and reflective of the DCC brand- and if it makes us laugh too, that’s just the cherry on top! APPLY HERE!

**Please Note: As a Dallas Comedy Club Intern, you are a DCC ambassador and therefore are expected to maintain professionalism at all times. Should any intern be removed from their duties due to a breach in code of conduct or a failure to meet expectations, they will be responsible for paying the remainder of their tuition.

STUDENT ADVOCATE SCHOLARSHIP:

The DCC Student Advocate Scholarship allows DCC students to take a free class in exchange for assisting the teacher and students in their assigned class. This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in gaining teaching and directing skills with the intention of teaching a class on their own. SA’s will be responsible for assisting DCC teachers on a technical and organizational level, as well as keeping extensive notes that will be shared with the instructor and students. Applications are available on a rolling basis and are accepted all year long. Those interested can apply here!
