The Funny Side Stand-up Comedy Course
The Funny Side stand-up comedy course has moved online. It will start on Monday 25th May and give you the opportunity to try writing and performing stand-up comedy. No previous experience is necessary.
The course will run weekly online on Zoom for 6 Mondays at 7pm and on the 7th Monday (6th July) there will be an online 'graduation' show.
Stand-Up comedy is a discipline that can be learned and we have a course here to take you from creating material through to performing in seven weeks! So if you've always wanted to try out your jokes on an unsuspecting world (and let's face it who hasn't) then why not take your first steps into stand-up comedy under the guidance of experienced tutor, Peter More. The participants will be coached in finding inspiration, writing, performing, dealing with the audience (in club situations) and encouraged to develop their own style.
Peter has been teaching stand-up for nearly 10 years. As a performer, he founded two clubs in Amsterdam. Last year at least 4 former students had shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
