But if you are serious about stand-up, you will want personalised feedback as well, from an experienced comedy professional, in order to consolidate your learning and  progress further.

1-to-1 comedy coaching, via Zoom call, from Alfie Noakes, fills that feedback gap.  Over two 75-minute coaching sessions, Alfie will help you build on your new stand-up skills, fine tune your material, and make the most of every gig.

We offer a 30 day money back guarantee with our online courses, and--if you buy course and coaching at the same time--you make a big saving off the combined cost.

If you are serious about stand-up comedy, this one is a no brainer.

If you don't want coaching

If you just don't want coaching...

Not everyone wants to buy coaching at this stage. You might prefer to advance one step at a time, and there's nothing wrong with that.

If that's you, we continue to offer Stepping Into Stand-Up Comedy as a standalone course, no coaching included. Just head over to the course page to buy the course only.

If you're trying to keep costs down...

If you decided against coaching just to keep costs down, we get it. Times are tough. If you are still undecided--and you don't want to miss the big saving on buying course and coaching together--you could consider paying for course + coaching by instalments. But we don't want you to spend more than you can afford right now.

If you go ahead with the course-only option, we promise you will get a ton of value and we'll keep you informed if we ever offer discounts on coaching in future.
