Stand Up Beginner's Course (Week 5)
Saturday 30th March 2024, 10:30am to 2:00pm - courses
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 Saturdays from the 2nd of March to the 30th of March. The course includes a final showcase at The Bill Murray - additional to the five class dates.
