Beginner’s Comedy Course

Have you always fancied trying stand up comedy? Now’s your chance.  

The beginner’s course will teach you the methods and techniques to craft your set, get up on stage and make an impact. The course is taught in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere.

course details

Each week we concentrate on a different aspect of comedy and then perform a small piece of material integrating the delivery and stage techniques that we’ve learnt.

There are plenty of writing exercises which often result with the class in stitches and frequently end up as material. There’s a real team dynamic in all classes with the shared goal of the graduation gig at the end.

The first half of the class is theory based and the second half is dedicated to performance and feedback. There is advice on how to market yourself and a list of contacts to secure future gigs should you choose to work on the comedy circuit. At the end of the course you will have the opportunity to entertain a friendly audience in our showcase performance.

Note: A condition of being on the course is completing the homework which we hope you will enjoy.

Our Facebook page Brighton Comedy Course has interviews and reviews from previous students. Please have a look.  The most repeated feedback is “I wish I hadn’t put it off so long and just took the plunge.”

 what’s different about our courses?

Brighton Comedy Course has delivered internationally acclaimed stand-up courses for over ten years. The courses are the most established comedy courses in the UK and unlike other courses, we cap numbers to ensure everyone has the opportunity to perform and receive feedback EVERY WEEK.

The graduation is open to all students and not just the selected few, which is unique to Brighton Comedy Course.

We believe that 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 course providers.
