Chris Head

Comedy & Speaking Coach
Comedy Director

I work via Zoom and in person in London and I can travel. I teach comedy writing for BBC Writersroom (and here's a blog I wrote for them), Bath Spa University and the British Library, and mentor writers and develop scripts with a TV production company. I work with stand-up comedians, on club sets and directing full length shows - as well as directing sketch and comedic plays. I run Zoom and in-person comedy courses in sitcom, comedy drama, sketch and stand-up. I also work with people on their speaking, pitching and presenting.

One-to-One Zoom Coaching

Browse my range of coaching options here, stand-up, sitcom, comedy drama and speaking. Consultations take place on Zoom and you will receive an mp4 video of the session. I have helped, inspired, emboldened and stimulated hundreds of comedy writers and perfomers. (Along the way fixing problems, enhancing performance, sharpening writing, growing confidence, expanding comfort zones...)

The image is me arriving at Superheroes advertising agency, Amsterdam, to lead pitching coaching. They seem to have an AI receptionist!

My Books

I have written two very well received books on comedy, published by Methuen Drama (an imprint of Bloomsbury).


COVER - A Director's Guide to the Art of Stand-up - by Chris Head-1.jpg
“Head’s style is refreshingly breezy and simultaneously substantial. He offers practical insights: for example, audiences do not laugh at material, they laugh with or at the performer who discovers a compelling comedic self. A remarkable manual".
