Always fancied trying your hand at stand-up comedy but never got around to it? Ever watched a stand-up comedy performance and thought ‘I’d love to give that a go?’
The 7-week course is designed to be a comprehensive introduction to writing and performing stand-up comedy and culminates with each participant getting the opportunity to perform their first gig.
Participants will develop methods and techniques for generating self-authored comedy material; combined with the ability to deliver the material in front of a live audience.
Workshops are every Wed evening, 7-9pm, for six weeks.
Starting on Wed 25 Jan and ending Wed 1 Mar.
Week 7 is the Comedy Graduates performance in the Godber Studio.
