Why this course?

Everyone says you should be a comedian, but...

For newcomers to stand-up comedy

You want to try stand-up, but you don't know where to start

  • Your friends say you're funny, but stand-up looks scary difficult
  • You don't have one original gag, let alone five minutes-worth 
  • You have some ideas, but how will they work on stage?
  • You're worried about hecklers shouting you down
  • You don't know if you are funny enough for stand-up 
For comedians with up to 100 gigs

You're gigging already, but you want more laughs more often

  • You've made a start, but you haven't found your comedy persona
  • You've had some good gigs, now you want to be more consistent
  • Your topical gags age fast, but your regular material feels jaded
  • Now the novelty has worn off, how will you maintain your spark?
  • Bad gigs feel devastating, and you wonder about quitting
Joke writing and structuring your set, finding your comedy persona, performing with confidence, even booking your first gig, and what to do after the show--it's all covered in-depth and online in Stepping Into Stand-Up Comedy.
