Laugh Class was created by Julie Donofrio, M.A.

Julie has been making people laugh for years, sometimes on purpose. She appeared in her first commercial when she was three. Her more recent television credits include a guest starring role in the pilot, "Finding Fabulous".  A motivational humorist, stand up comedian and improv actor, Julie has appeared everywhere from colleges to New York City comedy clubs to the Toronto Fringe Festival. Julie is currently a member of the comedy improv troupe Nuts and Bolts, and has previously worked with other improv and sketch troupes in New York City and Central New York.

Julie is also an educator, and has taught improv classes and workshops to students of all ages, from 5 to 90 years old. She is an improv instructor and emcee at A Magical Journey Thru Stages and at Writers & Books. Some of the groups that she has worked with include: American Diabetes Association, Cub Scouts, Young Audiences of Rochester and Monroe Community College, as well as many other organizations. Julie has studied humor in education extensively in her graduate work; her experience as a comedian and as an educator has evolved into Laugh Class. Laugh Class is dedicated to teaching valuable life skills while having fun.
