BEGINNERS STAND UP COURSE AND SHOWCASE
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.

FREE COMEDY WRITING GYM
A weekly session where an experienced comedy writer and performer will lead you in a number of writing exercises to get you writing. This is for anyone – whatever level – to get you out of the house, motivated, and writing. Every Saturday 12PM at The Bill Murray.

FREE WOMEN’S IMPROV WORKSHOP
A fun, enriching space for women to try their hand at improvised comedy in a supportive environment. The workshops are open to beginners, experienced performers, and people with dreadful stage-fright, regardless of their age, language level, or any other thing that might make you refrain from joining.  Every Sunday 3:30PM at The Camden Head.

FIND YOUR COMEDY VOICE

We go to comedy to laugh. But we connect with comedians because of who they are in between the jokes. We forget the ones who sound like stand-ups and remember the ones who sound like themselves. VOICE aims to find and refine your authentic onstage persona, The point is to be your funniest, unforced self in front of an audience and find ways of making jokes that are unique to you. 6 weeks Sunday May 26th – Sunday June 30th

The course is led by JOHN GORDILLO (“One of the key shapers of our modern comedy landscape” – The Guardian). John is currently directing shows for Tommy Tiernan, Shappi Khorshandi and Phil Nichol. In recent years, John has directed Josh Widdicombe, Reginald D Hunter, Dylan Moran, Mark Steel, Jason Manford, Seann Walsh, Sean Lock, Scott Capurro and Michael Mcintyre.
