Event description
Do your friends say you're funny and should be a comedian? Have you always wanted to try stand up?

About this event

Do you have a comedy itch from watching your favourite comedians on the TV as a child but never knew comedy was an option for you?

Do you have loads of comedy ideas but don't know what to do with them? Maybe you want to try something different to boost your confidence?

If so, this comedy training gives you everything you need to start writing, generating your own comic material and understand everything else that's involved with being a comedian.

This one day intensive comedy workshop is tailored for you to learn new skills, step out of your comfort zone, have a really good laugh and get motivated for your creative project. Basically get tooled up!

✨ But, I've never done comedy before? What if I'm not funny?

You don't need any experience of comedy writing - just have an interest in comedy, writing and being creative. I have taught people who have never done any comedy writing at all and people who've had experience. The workshop is designed to bring the funny out of you no matter where you're starting from. Plus, you are in the workshop with other women who are in the same boat as you.

✨ Who is Jane?✨

I'm a multi-comedy award finalist who has had sell out runs of my one woman shows at Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals over the last five years. I've also been heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Cumbria and BBC Radio Extra.

I ran a successful comedy night in Brighton for three years and produce a couple of comedy podcasts. I have done full one woman comedy character shows and I do straight stand up. I also do voice acting for radio plays and voice over.

During the workshop you will be able to ask me any questions about the industry and have some 1-2-1 time to talk about any creative projects or get some advice for your own career. I share all my experience and secrets about the comedy industry - (Most of which I wish I'd been told when i started out.)

I've taught hundreds of people across the UK and internationally to help them get on their comedy path. My workshop students have gone on to do stand up, win comedy competitions, write one woman shows, write children's books and write scripts / sketches.

✨Why is the workshop just for women?✨

Often women feel more supported and safe in an all female environment especially when they are stepping out of their comfort zone.

My workshops are for cis and trans women, as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centres on the experiences of women.

✨What do other people say?

"Amazing workshop! After about 15 minutes I felt connected with everyone in the workshop. I learnt so much and was so excited to start writing my own comedy material" - Natasha R

"I got the confidence to start doing stand up! Thank you so much for teaching me and for the ongoing support" - Alex B

"Thanks for a brilliant workshop! Great bunch of people - I'm still laughing now. Highly recommend!" - Sarah K

Are you ready to take your first steps into a world of comedy?

This is an intensive 6 hours workshop designed so you'll leave fully ready and trained to take on your chosen comedy project with confidence and excitement. Regardless of what you decide to do after the workshop the tools will help you in all walks of life.
