About the Instructors

Kristen Howard is an Air Force veteran and a graduate of ASAP’s Comedy Bootcamp, Musical Improv, Creative Writing, and Drawing programs. She’s been performing stand-up comedy with ASAP since 2017 and keeps audiences laughing with stories about her life as a mom of four.

Sara Minor is a Navy veteran and a graduate of both Storytelling and Comedy Bootcamp with ASAP. She has served as a mentor and assistant instructor for several Comedy Bootcamp sessions. When she’s not doing comedy, she’s doing space things at her job at NASA, Mom things with her teenage son, going to as many concerts as possible, and dodging turtles on her motorcycle. Ask her the story, she’d be happy to tell you. As are most things in life, it’s hilarious.
