Stand Up 1: Fundamentals ONLINE
Fight the fear and learn how comedians make one of the scariest pursuits look so effortless. Put together your stand-up comedy toolbox exploring a range of comedy techniques to expand your horizons and get out of your comfort zone.
Equip yourself with the tools required to crack up your audience, experiment with styles and techniques and discover the tricks and secrets behind the performance to transform yourself to be the funniest you can be. You will write your own material and learn how to deliver it.
This online course will have a stronger focus on writing, developing material, experimenting with styles and discovering your voice.
