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 comedy from learning how to write a simple “pull back and reveal” joke to how to apply for gigs on the London circuit.

The courses will not only cover detailed joke writing, but also performance and how to start gigging – and will culminate in your own gig at Angel comedy!

This is a 5 week course.
