Student stories - Dave Aron

My stand-up comedy course has helped me to give presentations for my work

Dave is an IT strategy analyst  and had never studied or performed anything related to entertainment before. He decided to take a 'Stand-up comedy' workshop at City Lit as he presents a lot on stage at work, and wanted to expand his creative boundaries,

"On the course I learnt a lot about how to write and perform stand-up comedy, including some details such as microphone technique, handling hecklers, how to promote yourself and prepare for a gig, and managing your career as a stand up.

"It has already helped me give presentations in my job (and will continue to). I am now considering doing comedy and other types of performance we well.

"My advice to other students would be to do it, do it, do it! It can be a bit scary, but it's definitely worth it."
