The Graduation Comedy gig

After completing two of Internationals weekend comedy courses, you will have the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience. You can take both courses in your own city or why not travel to another city. You can take as many weekend courses as you like to build and work your newfound skills.

There will be new destinations and weekends announced soon. Stay tuned and please get in touch if you’d like a course in your country. We aim to please.

What they had to say:

“I attended the comedy weekender a couple of weeks ago and left both motivated and educated in comedy.

Louise is an exceptionally encouraging teacher and her techniques on how to write material helped the group produce some very funny moments on stage just like we were at a real gig.

The group was great fun, some having returned for a second weekend having enjoyed the first and had been developing their material which made for a hilarious weekend with lots of mutual support and encouragement. Louise has inspired me to continue writing and I plan to go to a comedy open mic night and attend the next comedy weekender that Louise is running in March.

I have also booked to see a number of the lesser known comedians to see if I can get some performance tips.A big thanks to Louise for a great weekend and sharing your wealth of experience and knowledge with us that made me feel comfortable and want to get more involved in comedy. I hope to come down to Brighton in December and see your next graduates perform.” Sharon Barlow
