what type of person comes on a comedy course?

Do you want to be a stand up comedian? People come on the courses for many reasons, you might just want a challenge, to meet new people and have some laughs. At an absolute basic you’ll never fear Presentations and Public Speaking again, hell; you may even start to enjoy it!

People wrongly assume that everyone who comes on the courses is an extrovert with bags of confidence. It’s not the case. It’s terrifying to most people the idea of doing stand up, but with expert coaching people gradually, and sometimes suddenly, cut through the barriers of their comfort zone, throw caution to the wind and thrive.

Often people describe the graduation gigs as one of the best experiences of their lives!

What’s different about our Comedy Courses?

We cap numbers to ensure everyone has the opportunity to perform and receive feedback EVERY WEEK. The coaching is designed to enhance confidence, delivery and timing.

We believe stage-time is crucial to improve your comedy, after the graduation gig, so there is no “Signing off process” which prohibits you from performing until deemed fit, unlike other courses.

The coach, Louise Stevenson, is a working comedian who regularly performs and comperes at comedy nights and comedy festivals. It’s beneficial to have a tutor who’s actually a comedian, who knows the job and the challenges that arise day to day.
