A few Chamber members completed this Comedy Course last year, and it would be fair to say they had a blast. This course isn't specifically for aspiring comedians, it's for anyone who wants to improve their confidence and public speaking skills. If you want to challenge yourself in 2019 and come out of your comfort zone, this course is for you. It will teach you the methods and techniques to engage an audience and make an impact. The course is taught in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere.
Each week we concentrate on a different aspect of comedy and then perform a small piece of material integrating the delivery and stage techniques that we’ve learnt. Everyone gets to perform and everyone receives feedback (and usually laughter,) in return.
There are plenty of writing exercises which often result with the class in stitches and frequently end up as material. There’s a real team dynamic in all classes with the shared goal of the graduation gig at the end. The graduation is open to all students and not just the selected few, which is unique to Brighton Comedy Course.
There are weekly homework tasks, resulting in a tidy stockpile of material. Our Facebook page Brighton Comedy Course has interviews and reviews from previous students. Please have a look. The most repeated feedback is “I wish I hadn’t put it off so long and just took the plunge.”
The Beginners Comedy Courses runs twice a year. The course is limited to 12 to ensure individual feedback for each student.
This is a practical course designed to provide the tools and know-how for you to tap into your own comedy genius. Learn how to write and structure your own material and deliver it with confidence. Tap into positive body language and stage techniques which will enhance all future public speaking experiences.
The first half of the class is theory based and the second half is dedicated to performance and feedback. There is advice on how to market yourself and a list of contacts to secure future gigs should you choose to work on the comedy circuit. At the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to entertain a friendly audience in our showcase performance. Unlike other comedy courses, this opportunity is opened to all students.
Please note that a condition of being on the course is doing the homework which I hope you will enjoy.
All courses are booked on a first come first served basis with a maximum of 12 places.

“This course was everything I needed to get the knowledge and confidence to do stand up comedy. Louise is a great teacher she gets you performing straight away. Highly recommend to anyone that fancies themselves at stand up comedy. The graduation gig at the end is fantastic. Pretty much guaranteed to get everyone laughing.” Harvey Dann, November 2016
