Comedy & Speaking Coaching

Chris is a Director of, with his courses, books and podcasts offered to amateur and professional comics across the world.  Here's a sample below:

I work one-to-one with individuals and offer bespoke small group sessions in London, Stroud and online covering stand-up, comedy writing and speaking. To give you a flavour, I am currently working with a musical stand-up comic on a new direction for her act, with a writer on developing a commissioned Radio 4 sitcom and short film ideas, with a stand-up on material for an Edinburgh group show, with a TV producer on a commissioned sitcom script, and recently I ran a bespoke series of sitcom coaching sessions which has resulted in one of their number being shortlisted in the BAFTA Rocliffe sitcom competition.

£50 an hour. One off sessions payable on the day. Regular or multiple bookings invoiced at the end of the month.

In person consultations 

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday daytimes & Wednesday evenings. Other times can be available. Please enquire.

The hotel is in a little side road off Dean Street opposite Soho Theatre. I meet people in the lounge which is a quiet, comfortable space suitable for discussing all kinds of work. I can watch videos and read scripts in advance.



Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. Other times can be available. Please enquire.

Zoom is a stable online meetings platform which will work in your browser or you can download the app. You do need good broadband so ideally please be somewhere quiet with fibre broadband. One-to-one sessions or small group meetings both possible. I will supply you with an mp3 of the session.

Performance rehearsals and directing

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday daytimes & Wednesday evenings. Other times can be available. Please enquire.

This great venue in the City of London has a range of rehearsal spaces. I rehearse shows I'm directing here and also do one-off or a short series of sessions to work on their delivery and performance. Room hire: £10/£12 or £15 an hour 


In person consultations

Saturday mornings. (And occasional Friday daytimes)

We meet in the quiet bar of the hotel which is by the train station and where there is also ample parking. Sitting across a table we can discuss all kinds of work and I can watch videos or read scripts in advance. If you'd like to do a performance rehearsal (for stand-up for example) we can do so at my home near the centre of Stroud.
