Why this course?

Everyone says you should be an MC, but...

For the first-time MC

You're getting the hang of stand-up, but MCing looks scary difficult

  • You know you lack the material to fill an entire MC gig
  • You still don't feel comfortable enough to riff spontaneously
  • You lack real experience dealing with hecklers 
  • Your crowd work sometimes flops--and you don't know why
  • You don't know if you are up to it
For the MC who wants to raise their game

You're MCing already, but you want to be better, and more consistent

  • Some shows go well, others badly--and you don't know why
  • You feel constrained as an MC, and you're playing way too safe
  • You struggle to "work in" your regular material
  • You're good with hecklers, but sometimes you lose the audience
  • You can do the housekeeping OR be funny--but not both
Crowd work, heckler-management, spontaneous and work-in material, setting the tone, even keeping the night on track and on time--it's all covered in-depth and online in How To Be A Brilliant Stand-Up Comedy MC.

Being an MC is a real skill and I learned so much. I feel that, even as a stand-up, I have better abilities when doing crowd work.
