ABCs of Comedy introduction to stand-up
Our 8 part comedy course, ‘An introduction to stand-up comedy’ will guide you through your first steps in the stand-up comedy world.
The course will help to develop and blend together the unique material, style and persona of each participant as they produce a short and tight set of stand-up comedy. Over the eight sessions you will explore a range of essential comedic performance skills and techniques and build confidence and self-awareness within the performance space.
This eight part workshop runs 2 hours each week on Tuesday evenings between 7.00pm to 9.00pm; April 28th to June 16th.
All those who complete the workshop will be invited to take part in Creative Culture South West’s open mic comedy evening, Stand Up & Shout.
