Over six sessions this course will guide you through writing your first five minutes of material, culminating in a live comedy showcase for friends and family at the end of the course. Stand-Up Comedy for Beginners is for those who have never done stand-up before, as well as new comedians hoping to hone their five-minute act. Our workshop sessions will help you uncover your unique comic voice, reveal the techniques, and exercises professional comedians use to generate jokes, and coach you in performance skills. Whether you dream of being the next Kevin Hart or Katherine Ryan, want to boost your gag ratio for a best man speech, or hope to gain in confidence with public speaking – this course takes a supportive and friendly approach to the art of making people laugh. What You Will Learn How to create your own material through writing exercises, improvisation, and imagination. How to command a room and make everyone want to listen to you. Performance skills and how to use a microphone. Editing and structuring material. How the industry works and how to get booked. Every week you will also be given challenges and exercises to work on at home and will receive feedback and encouragement to gradually build a killer comedy set!
