Course in London

For More in depth learning, we also have a Premium Course Option for £279/£259 : This offers additional one-to-one training on top the two weekends and four days.

This course is aimed at students who have completed our 2 Day Beginners course, or new comedians who have been gigging for 12-18 months. If you are a beginner, you can book a discount package to attend our 2 day Beginners course and this course together.

What makes a good professional comic funny, 300 gigs a year?

Building on the skills learned on the dynamic 2 day Laughing Horse beginners course, or from what a new comic has learned from gigging on the open-mic circuit for a year to 18 months, the Intermediate course takes students to the next level and towards a much deeper understanding as to what professional comics do.

The techniques taught are practical and effective. These are taught by Professional comics who are gigging and working currently. The Laughing Horse have been teaching comedy now for over 11 years and have taught thousands of students. Many of whom are gigging and even making a living from Comedy.

Our tutors 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.

"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

The course is very practical and runs over 2 consecutive weekends, Saturday and Sunday 12-4.30pm with a graduation show on the final evening of the course open to friends, relatives and the public. The students perform for 7-10 minutes in the showcase.

Please note there will be Homework set over all the dates!

The Course covers:

What is Comic Timing?

How to perfect it?

How to create a full routine?

"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

How to MC/Host a comedy show?

How to progress in the current comedy industry?

How full-time comedians approach comedy?

How to build Material?

The mantra for the course is: “It is not by luck professional comedians are funny?”

You can be taught how to be funny, it’s up to you how funny you want to be. That’s down to the work you put in, but you should know what that work is.

"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

Comedy can seem a big unfathomable task. But with the right coaching and guidance, Stand-up Comedy will be easier and far more enjoyable and can become addictive.

Previous students from the Laughing Horse Comedy include:

·         Daniel Sloss

·         Imran Yusuf

·         Nat Luurtsema

All appearing regularly on TV, National tours, Live DVD's

As well as many working comedians around the circuit both in the UK and in America at all levels from open mic to professional.
