What it is
The class is limited to 10 people.

By storytelling, we mean attention-grabbing tales, peppered or drenched with funny twists and turns to enthrall and delight your audience.

Further, We Are Funny Project will provide stage time to students so that aspects of what will have been learned can be applied and practised.

The "Early Bird" price is £65 and tickets are available until 1130pm Monday 13th May and then the price increases to £85.

It’s a fun and practical workshop that looks at :

* How we can develop a funny story from an initial idea to a finished bit.

* Techniques to generate ideas for stories.

* How to develop and edit a story.

* What makes a story work for you and your on stage persona.

* Adding the funny.

Learn to share key information in the most amusing way. After all, stories are often teachable tales.
The aim of the day is for you to be able to take events that have happened, or have not happened, and make them funny to the audience in front of you.

"Comedy Storytelling Workshop with Alfie Noakes was incredibly helpful. Great mix of theory and practice to help you get the best comic value out of your stories. Lots of of opportunities for feedback and discussion with other comedians too. Helped me work out how to structure a potential story I wasn't sure would work on stage!"

"I did Alfies Comedy Story Telling workshop on Saturday, which was excellent. Alfie was very good, explaining the methods succinctly, ready to answer questions. I look forward to put these methods into practice, not only for Comedy Story Telling, but also for writing Jokes. Thanks so much"
