What You'll Get


This stand up course is intended for non-performers, newbies and working comedians alike looking to gain a deeper understanding of our structure-based approach to stand-up comedy.

Intermediate-level topics covered in this course will include:

  • Becoming confident on stage
  • Identity exercises
  • How to mine your personal life for comedy material
  • Basic comedy structure, and how it is used to create surprise
  • The importance of brevity and its effect on stand up material
  • How to discover additional tags on existing material
  • Pacing and the power of silence
  • Acknowledging the environment to stay 'in the moment'
Successful completion of this course will culminate in a stage performance in front of a live audience on one of our club stages!

We believe that comedy is truly an art-form, a combination of raw talent and technique. Talent can be lost without technique, so we first teach joke structure and the basic language of comedy. We also believe that what makes a great comedian is being personal and authentic and, perhaps, a rule-breaker, so we provide a safe and fun environment where you can be just that: authentic, inspired and successful. Whether you are already a working comedian or looking to make it your profession, or simply need help with that next presentation or just want to come and have fun, we can help you find the path to funny. 

PREREQUISITES: None.
