I was near chucking stand-up. I joined the membership in a last-ditch attempt, not necessarily be a TV comedian but so that I could start enjoying comedy again. I felt a bit stale with what I was doing. Louise encouraged me to start experimenting with different genres of comedy and I was surprised to find that I really enjoyed writing and delivering one liners. I didn’t go on Louise’s beginner’s comedy course, though I wish I had. The comedy course I went on had very set ideas on comedy, a one fits all approach, and I didn’t feel that I could develop my individual persona on stage. I have re-found my love of comedy and I’m really enjoying performing again. Comedy Store ahoy!
