Event Details

 "People say comedy can't be taught. They could learn a lot from Jill Edwards." Jill Edwards Comedy Workshops graduate Jimmy Carr, award winning comic and TV presenter

Jill Edwards short stand-up comedy courses are a practical, fun taste of her highly acclaimed and the original Brighton comedy course, at Brighton's Komedia (since 2005). Her stand-up comedy classes have a proven and continuous track record of success over 20 years. Jill Edwards graduate list includes award winning television regulars Jimmy Carr, Shappi Khorsandi, Simone Evans, Angela Barnes, Seann Walsh and Romesh Ranganathan. 


Jill is at the centre of the thriving Brighton comedy scene, most of the established local nights are run by her comedy course graduates. Jill Edwards Brighton comedy courses are based, all year round, at Brighton's premier award winning comedy venue the Komedia, which is also the home of her monthly comedy club Comic Boom.


"Within three hours she has me writing and performing my own three minute stand-up set." Matt Keating, The Guardian


Enjoy a fun taste of learning how to create, write and perform your own stand-up comedy. The end result is a brief (1 min) stand-up set, which you can choose to perform to your family/friends in Komedia's intimate Studio Bar venue.


Jill has taught her one-day stand-up comedy courses for the Brighton Comedy Festival and fof the BBC New Comedy Awards in Brighton and London.


Have you ever laughed?

Jill believes if you've ever laughed you already have the skills you need to make others' laugh. All you need are her straightforward comedy writing and performance techniques to help you access your latent comedy skills. Jill's short comedy courses offer you a unique opportunity to try something different, learn something new, improve confidence, while having fun just having a go at stand-up comedy.


It's a lot of fun!

Jill's comedy courses attract people from all walks of life. You do not need to have something funny to say, or know how to write jokes, or feel confident speaking in public. The idea of stand-up comedy might frighten people, but this course is not frightening. Jill's experienced and encouraging teaching approach increases your self-confidence and self-belief, empowering you to enjoy discovering your "inner comic."


"This course isn't just for aspiring comedians - I would highly recommend it as a place to go to build confidence, get creative and gain an understanding of how comedian-audience relationship works. But if you're an aspiring comedian, you'll be in safe hands with Jill Edwards." Mandi Goodier, Reader's Digest
