Event description
Have you always wanted to write your own one woman show? Now is the time! New & improved 6 Week Masterclass for 2021!

About this event

Do you feel like you have a show inside you? Do your friends say you're funny and should write about your life? Have you been wondering how an Edinburgh fringe show is put together and what is involved? Or, are you struggling to write alone and need some support?

If so, this intensive 6 week Masterclass gives you all the tools to get writing your own one hour show and gives you help with everything that is involved.

There is no other workshop like this available in the UK that takes you through everything step by step. This masterclass will give you a head start and save you time/money. Plus, you will get feedback on the show you are wanting to write and support from the group. Often it is hard to work alone and not have anyone to bounce ideas off so you will be meeting likeminded women!

Is the masterclass just for women?

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

Over the 6 weeks the Masterclass includes:

✅ How to put your ideas together for a show

✅ Setting out your intentions and goals

✨ 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. My shows have appeared at Brighton Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe and the Women in Comedy Festival. 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.

I also have over 15 years of experience working in marketing and social media which will help you promote your show and yourself as a brand.

During the workshop you will be able to ask me any questions about the industry and have 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.

What do others say who have completed the Masterclass?

"I was delighted to be able to take part in Jane's One Woman Show Masterclass. She is extremely experienced in performing several of her own shows throughout festivals and venues. She is intricate in detail and it really is an eye opener as to what needs to be done before you take your show on the road. I was delighted to realise I have enough material for 2 if not 3 One Woman Shows." - Margo C

"Just finished Jane's 6 week masterclass and went from being a complete beginner with no idea, and just doing for myself, to having a concept, timeline and storyline for one show, concept for another, plus synopsis for a radio sitcom, and most importantly all the information I needed to start performing, finding venues and also advertising." - Elle W

"Jane is a supportive teacher and is on hand to help us with whatever we are required to do and how to do it. I now have ideas not only for a one woman show but a radio play and podcast" - Katie K

"I came to the masterclass thinking I would write a show but came out of the 6 weeks with far more. I now have an idea for a book and have more clarity on the comedy career I want to pursue." - Emma R
