Week 7: Stand Up Beginner's Course (online)
Seven week online course beginning on Saturday 23rd January (and then: 30th January, 6th, 13th, 20th & 27th February & 6th March).
This course is for people who have never done stand-up comedy or new comedians looking to sharpen their act.
We will build our own brand new stand-up sets by looking at the very basics of stand-up comedy: learning to write jokes, generating material, structuring work, performance skills and applying for gigs. Most importantly, this is great way to have fun in a creative and supportive environment.
Cost: £180 (NHS, student and unemployment discounts available - just ask).
