We Are Funny Workshop "Maximising Your Stand Up" Stephen Grant
Sun 14 May 2017, 11:45 – 16:45 BST
This is quite simply a master-class. Stephen Grant is a comic genius, twice winner of MC of the Year and regular MC at The Comedy Store New Years’ Eve show, arguably the biggest club gig in Europe. This Workshop is designed for acts at all levels, however, anyone with less than 200 gigs will surely benefit the most. This is the best advice, with direct feedback, from one of the greats of British comedy.
The £75 price is for a newly reduced class size and includes pub meal and a drink, pint or a glass of wine.
The focus is on taking a bit and focusing in on it, breaking it down, building it back up to funnier and what some key processes are. It'll take an OK idea and make it good, and likely a good idea would be propelled to great material. Stephen will present a lecture on the theories and processes at the beginning of the day and then after a break each act will get up and do 2- 3 minutes for immediate feedback.
The rest of the class will be the audience, and as much is learned from the comments for fellow students as in the personalised review. There are a lot of laughs throughout the day. I am utterly convinced that this Workshop will save new acts from so many errors and dead-ends in their earlier days, and it’s a great way to get to know other fresh(ish) faces on the scene.
We believe it is important that you can apply what you learn at the Workshop, so each student will be offered some stage time at our gigs in the period following the Workshop.
