Hey! Fancy unleashing your funny bones? Have you wanted to try stand-up comedy, but didn’t really know where to start? Or do you know someone who would love to take to the stage as a comedian? Well, we’ve got a gift for you…
The legendary Stand Comedy Club welcomes you to our brand-new Stand Academy, where seasoned professional working comedians will be your tutors for our tough but fun bootcamp comedy course.
It’s not for the faint hearted, but our intensive one-day course will help students create a firm foundation to start your career as a stand up, or even to use these skills in the workplace to create knock out presentations and improve your public speaking.
You’ll have the chance to perform on the stage before a paying audience at the world-famous Stand Comedy Club, Edinburgh
Places are limited to only 15, so you’ll receive fairly intensive attention!
Or as we like to call it, how not to look like a fanny when you take the mic out of the stand
Taking the fear out of performing:
Beat the nerves. Even the ones that make you fart. And they do.
Working that stage, audience interaction and unarmed heckler combat
Turning your sense of humour into gags:
Those stories you tell that crack everyone up? Those. Thats your material
Using those gags to structure a set
Getting you started in stand up
How the Comedy Business works
Students will be encouraged (but not bullied) into taking part at our showcase night. Using these skills learned at the Stand Academy, you could be taking the mic at the iconic Stand Comedy Club during our Showcase night.
Your very first five minutes as a comedian could be on the same stage that launched Frankie Boyle and Kevin Bridges.
£125 (If you are purchasing as a gift, please email email@example.com with details of where we should post information)
10.00am – 4pm (you do get a break for lunch)
THE AGE RESTRICTION:
This course is suitable for 18+ as it takes place on a licenced premises.
Our tutors are headline standard working comedians with a wealth of experience. The course is primarily led by Susan Morrison and Jojo Sutherland, but others may drop by too. There will always be at least 2 professional regular Stand Comedy Club comics.
