Live comedy is down, not out

You're right. Covid-19 knocked live comedy on its arse. But we reckon comedy nights are coming back, and quicker than you think.

You see, we cut our teeth in stand-up after the crash of 2008. Back then, we saw an unquenchable appetite for live comedy, regardless of economic circumstances.

The same is true today. We need to push the chairs a bit further apart, but live comedy is going nowhere. Are you ready to take the stage?

Now is a great time to learn or refresh your stand-up skills. And with online learning, you don't have to worry about any deadly viruses. At least not from us.

Comedians love our work

I never thought I would have the courage to do stand-up…  after the sessions, I felt confident to go out there and do my thing... such a rewarding process from start to finish.
Krish W, London
Tremendously supportive and honest feedback. If something doesn't work, Alfie says so... Just what I needed... one of the best things I have done for my comedy... worth every penny.
Stephen W, London
Damn, the MC course lived up to expectations and more... some skills are also transferable to your stand-up comedy routine.
