This course is for people who have never done stand up comedy or new comedians looking to sharpen their act. We will look at the very basics of stand up, from learning how to write a “pull back and reveal” joke to applying for gigs on the London circuit and the course culminates in your own gig at Angel Comedy!
This is a 5 week course, running on Sundays from the 24th of September to the 22nd of October. The course includes a final showcase at The Bill Murray on 28th of October - additional to the five class dates.
