Our week stand-up workshop is open to all levels! From absolute beginners wanting to try their hand at stand-up to more seasoned comics wanting to work on new material or "punch up" existing jokes to get back in the comedy zone. You'll get to work with professional comedians with many years of international performance and coaching experience who will help you craft your observations and stories into solid jokes as well as work on timing and delivery, simple techniques to help you react in the moment and interact with an audience. Specially designed writing assignments will help you build up a store of funny material and in each session you will test out jokes in a supportive environment. Our personalized feedback will help you polish your material so that by the time of the performance you have solidly written a set of jokes that you can continue to perform regularly.
