The Intermediate Stand up course is for people who have already completed The Beginner’s Course, or The Comedy Weekender. You must have the foundations of stand-up comedy, know the basics of writing material and have performed in front of a live audience.
This is a eight week course for those who want to take their comedy a step further or get their mojo back to experience a real improvement in their comedy. It’s an opportunity to:
- Learn more about stand-up comedy
- Write a new comedy set
- Tighten up your performance
- Learn new joke structures and delivery techniques
There’s pre-work before so that you get the most out it. There’s advice, practical exercises and tips on how to edit existing material and brainstorm new material. You may want to challenge yourself to write a whole new set from scratch. We’ll be looking at case studies from successful working comedians, as well as plenty of tips on how we can up our game.
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 the pre-work is a must.
If you want to take your Comedy and take it to the next level, this course will help. We’ll finish the course with an action plan and clear goals to work towards.

what they had to say about the course:
“I did the intermediate comedy course and had a blast, Louise is a fantastic teacher and coach. I wish I had done the beginners class too with Louise. I came back to comedy after my anxiety held me back, during this course I got my confidence back and will continue to give it a go. Don’t just think about it just do it it could be the best thing you ever do.” Nat Robinson
