Beginners Stand Up Comedy

Teacher: Caroline Clifford

You can’t teach funny - but I do believe you can inform people what isn’t funny. By freeing yourself of cliches, common pitfalls and just… crapness - you can have a much more productive start to your stand-up career. This course will be performance focused, so get ready for plenty of stage-time! As an experienced stand-up myself and the producer of a long-running open-mic, I often see new comics take to the stage and make the same mistakes over and over. I just think to myself "This person might be funny... in a year". With this course I aim to leap-frog you over that initial hump so you can take to the open mic scene with a really decent 5-7, which you'll perform to a full friendly house a our student show! My course is heavily influenced by the teaching style of my mentor and friend Logan Murray , author of "Be a great stand-up" and "Get started in stand-up comedy". He once said about me "One of the best comics to come along in a long time". Aww. Make new friends, get out of your comfort zone and have a life-changing experience! What this course covers:
