What's covered?

This course is for you whether you fancy a career in stand- up comedy or simply wish to improve your comedy skills and apply them in other areas of life.
Stand-up comedy has emerged in recent years as an exciting performance style, constantly changing and updating itself as the range of practitioners and their particular chosen styles of delivery evolve. This course will enable learners to study the techniques of past performers and to develop the necessary performance skills and comic techniques to perform stand-up routines themselves. It will give students the opportunity to build a portfolio of research, improve their skills and take part in performance work devised through their development of material.
