The Advanced Stand up Comedy Course

This course is rolled out once a year and runs on consecutive weekdays for five weeks from 7pm to 9pm. The Advanced Stand up course is for people who have already completed the beginner’s course with BCC or who have experience of working on the comedy circuit and are serious about comedy.

There is regular support and guidance throughout the course, including practical exercises and tips on how to edit existing material and brainstorm new material. There is also the option of writing a whole new set from scratch. Students will work individually and as a team to build a polished comedy set.

There will be gig analysis for those working on the circuit, what worked, what didn’t and why. How can we improve our sets? We will look at more complicated joke techniques and aim to incorporate them into our material. There is also a master class on compering, and running your own gig.

There will be advice on how to market yourself and a list of contacts to secure future gigs on the comedy circuit in Brighton, London and further afield. At the end of the course there will be the opportunity to relive the graduation gig with the showcase performance. As in the beginner’s week course, writing material for homework is a must.

Here’s a review from Title Media from the last taster in February 2018.

Stand up comedy taster session 10am-12pm. Have you always fancied trying your hand at stand up comedy? On these fun taster sessions, you’ll have a go at writing comedy material and delivering it. These sessions aim to give you a flavour of the online comedy courses, the 8 week comedy course and the one to one coaching. Ideal for enhancing confidence and building public speaking and presentation skills. So if you want to try something new, challenge yourself and have fun then this is for you.

Presenting with humour taster session 1pm-3pm. This taster session aims to inject your own sense of humour into your copy, pitches and presentations. The main denominator of the top successful TED talks from last year was that they all contained humour. Humour keeps your audience engaged, breaks up technical language, and lightens even the most heavy of information overload. There will be key advice on how to improve your delivery and presentations too.

“This was a really worthwhile course. There were a lot of practical writing exercises which were great for trying out the new techniques and styles that we learned about. We were always challenged to stretch ourselves and be brave, but the atmosphere was always friendly and comfortable, which really encouraged us to just write on instinct and not be afraid of making mistakes. I picked up some really useful tips along the way, and since the course finished I’ve even had two of my homework pieces accepted for publication in online literary journals. A great course for building confidence and improving your skills!”  Tom Marcantonio 2017

Comedy for team and individual employee development

All businesses can benefit from having confident employees who can present with humour.
