"I have been doing stand-up in France for the last 20 years... I had always dreamed of doing stand-up in the UK. So I found one of the best English stand-up comedy coaches: Alfie Noakes. He's brilliant, great fun, and he really knows stand-up comedy."

Why stand-up comedy coaching?

Because you can't improve what you can't see

It's practically impossible to evaluate your own performance when you are on stage. You're too busy trying to read the room and get through your set. As a result:
  • You miss out on the biggest laughs and you don't even know it
  • You struggle to make sense of mixed reactions to your new material
  • You know when something's "off" but you don't know how to fix it
  • You make changes, you don't see any improvement, and you're frustrated
You can fix all this with 1-to-1 comedy coaching, via Zoom call, with Alfie Noakes. Fix your set, find your voice, feel confident on stage.

Coaching is available in packages of two, four or six 75-minute sessions. Choose your package now, or--for even better value--check out our course + coaching bundles.

Comedians and MCs love coaching!

Alfie was tremendously supportive and honest with his feedback. If something doesn't work, he will tell you. That was what I needed... one of the best things I have done for my comedy... worth every penny.
Stephen W, London
Alfie helped me understand the best way to deliver my set and maximise the funny. People definitely noticed the difference... Alfie really got to know me, and tailored the advice which was great.
Brian B, London
Alfie helped me focus on what I needed to keep, what I needed to improve and, most importantly, what I needed to ditch.
