“ It was a fantastic 6 week course, which transforms you in to a stand-up comic! be warned, you will become funny. I wanted to face my fear and do stand-up. I did it. The night of the show (your final performance) is electric and you will have made friends for life afterwards. My advice: sign-up, stand-up and stand-out! ”

“ Great course. Highly recommended to anyone who's ever wanted to give stand up comedy a go but has maybe been too scared or hasn't got round to it yet. Bentley has got loads of good advice, exercises and techniques to help ease you into the world of standup comedy and bringing out your own individual jokes and material to form a routine. He then helps you edit and punch up your material for the final show. Lots of fun and can't recommend enough! ”

“ One of the best things I've done in my life... Bentley is completely professional, not an academic, he is a working comic and he knows the circuit (check that out on other teachers before signing up elsewhere) . Met a great bunch of people, and... as embarressingly crap as this must sound, this really has changed my life, it's changed how I see myself... and the world... really who needs therapy when you can do stand-up. ”
