Two glorious days of fun packed tuition in a warm and encouraging atmosphere. This event happens twice a year and books up fast. If you want the confidence and know-how to get on that stage and make them laugh then this weekend course is your chance to dip your toe in the water.
You’ll learn techniques on delivery and timing which will help with confidence and presenting in general. You’ll also have some laughs and meet a few new friends. We will be writing, performing and using techniques from the world of comedy to tap into to your own comedy genius. It will completely transform how you present.
We will 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. Everyone gets to perform and everyone receives feedback (and usually laughter,) in return.
There are plenty of writing exercises which often result with having a small stock pile of material. It’s a common misconception that everyone who comes on the course is an extrovert with bags of confidence. It varies, but the teaching and encouragement will gradually (sometimes suddenly) bring out your confidence .The coaching environment is designed to bring out your comedy genius and help you shine. A safe safe space with like minded human beings. There’s also the opportunity to socialise with the group for drinks after in the vibrant Brighton nightlife, should you so wish.
