About Comedy: Stand-Up Comedy Course

Learn the skills and art of performing stand-up comedy on this two-day intensive comedy course.

Including: joke-writing skills, generating material, comedy deconstruction, finding material, lively interactive performance practice sessions, history of comedy, technical skills, industry tips. Plus, a graduation show performance in a Fringe show.

Our tutors are professional comedians, comedy writers and experienced teachers and this course is led by experienced comic and our course creator, Jay Sodagar.

The course runs over two days, with two four-and-a-half hour sessions on each day, followed by the graduation show.

"This course has to be one of the best on offer ... Highly recommended ... Everyone seemed delighted with the experience." ★★★★ (ThreeWeeks Magazine, Edinburgh Fringe)

"Jay's courses - the intro through to the advanced - have infused a new vitality and structure into my comedy ethos. I truly believe that had I stumbled onto Jay sooner, I'd have much more to show for my comedy career aspirations" (Course Graduate)
