We offer a range of part-time stand up comedy courses at all levels, including daytime, evening and weekend courses. Come and learn stand up comedy in an enjoyalbe, welcoming environment with expert tuition. Enjoy a range of comedy, whether you are a complete beginner and just want to learn how to be funny or if you want to learn to write comedy or hone your skills ready for a performance. Here's what some of our students said about their stand-up comedy courses:

"I had several reasons to give stand up comedy a try - but for a long time didn't have the nerve. From day one the teacher encouraged us to be ourselves. A safe and supportive environment was created in which I learned how to focus, to write and have confidence in my work."
