What makes a good Stand-Up Comedian? Is it a natural talent? Or can you learn how to be a Comedian?

There are many common misconceptions as to how this is done

Laughing Horse have  been teaching a comedy course for over 8 years that guides you through a proven process that professional comics use to write, perform and approach Stand-Up Comedy.

This course is not taught by theorists, lecturers or people that have never set foot on a stage.  It is delivered by professional comedians who are currently performing Stand Up several times a week.

"friendly, informative and well-structured. A supportive environment allows wannabe stand-ups to develop material quickly, and the course even offers opportunities to perform on stage... A no-brainer for anyone interested in the business, and a fun experience for any weekend wonder whose always wanted to know what it was like behind the mic stand." - Paul Doncaster, 2-day course graduate

They have huge experience in teaching this art form and giving valuable feedback, problem-solving and encouraging students to develop their routine. They have a wide-ranging knowledge of the industry and how to make career progress.

The 4-week course is best suited to people who have never performed stand up comedy before, or for new comedians wanting to get a good grounding knowledge of how stand-up works.

The course is very practical and spread over four weeks with a graduation show on the final evening open to friends, relatives and the public. This course offers much more in depth learning than the two-day course.

"I just wanted to thank you and Kevin for this weekend's course. I found it very helpful and informative." - Jeremy Leverton, 4-week course graduate

These courses run with four sessions over four weeks - each on a Saturday Afternoon

This course is broken up into four weekly sessions, over a series of evenings or afternoons, giving the student chance to prepare and develop over the duration of the course, and study between sessions. The Course runs on Saturday afternoons from 12pm to 4pm, with a graduation show on the night of the final date.

During the course you will cover:

  • Where material comes from and how to make routines of your own continuously.
  • How to write material
  • Practical writing exercises
  • Learning how professional comics deconstruct comedy by watching and discussing current comedians
  • Editing and performing material written
  • Microphone and performance Technique
  • How the industry works

"It's improved my confidence and the open spot I performed went down really well! And it's pretty cheap too! If you've got funny bones, you can do no better" - Duncan Hart, 2-day course graduate

At the end of the course students perform on stage doing a 5 minute set at the graduation show.

Immerse yourself in Stand Up Comedy for a month (There will be homework!) - And for the duration of the course you will get free entry to all Laughing Horse and Comedy point Comedy clubs.
