I never thought I would have the courage to do stand-up…  after the sessions, I felt confident to go out there and do my thing... such a rewarding process from start to finish.

Tremendously supportive and honest feedback. If something doesn't work, Alfie says so... Just what I needed... one of the best things I have done for my comedy... worth every penny.

Damn, the MC course lived up to expectations and more... some skills are also transferable to your stand-up comedy routine.
