In Stand-up, Comedy Writing & Speaking
Most sessions are online via Zoom but I can also meet in person in London and Stroud, UK.
Whether we're working on stand-up, comedy writing or speaking, every session is practical, pesonal and inspiring. I've been doing this for over 20 years and we can get so much more done in a short time than you could ever imagine. Plus if meeting online, you will receive an mp4 video of the session. And for work on scripts and material, I don't simply send you notes. We work together to develop your work and come up with ideas, improvements and solutions between us.
From £25 for 30 mins and £50 for an hour.
Here's a script session testimonial:
"I can’t recommend Chris enough – though I’ll give it a go. Not only did he help me fix my script’s structure, but he also helped me hone my characters and see where to make cuts. Working with Chris got me out of the rut I was lodged in and helped me progress to the next level with my producer. I’ll be sending any new scripts I’m working on Chris’s way."
Writer Jared Hamilton who did Zoom sessions with me on his TV sitcom script

Harry ter Harr, comedy writer
"Chris has an incredible knowledge of sitcom structure and archetypes. He is a brilliant editor with a clinical and comedic eye. His feedback is always super clear, informed and thoroughly thought through. He works very quickly and is a natural and generous teacher. I really liked that he kept on bringing me back to character as opposed to simply trying to 'think of funny ideas.' This really enriched the project."
Stefania Licari, Stand-up comedian
"Chris is truly the most amazing comedy director and stand up mentor. His passion, care and extensive knowledge make his coaching a must for anybody in the industry or seriously interested in comedy. Also he has this (very rare!) ability to work efficiently with international students, bringing out the richness of various and diverse backgrounds and cultures."
Lauren LoGiudice, US stand-up
"I worked with Chris to develop my persona and he was able to diagnose what I was doing … and where I needed to go. He had great ideas as I encountered obstacles in figuring out how to implement the elements of my persona. It’s now so clear that after a recent performance someone asked to cast me in a film to play a character who is like my persona!"
Caroline Goyder, author and speaking coach
"Chris is - I say this rarely - a genius. He draws out your ideas and helps you shape them so they work. Then he shows you how to land them with power. And he does is with a real groundedness and calm that is hugely confidence building."

Lottie Field, Comedy writer, performer and stand-up
"I cannot recommend Chris highly enough as a comedy coach. He has a tremendous wealth of knowledge and depth of understanding about every aspect of comedy. He brings a real clarity of vision and I have gained so much direction and motivation and would encourage any comic to work with him."
Kieran Setiya, author
"Chris Head taught my that the story comes first, how to involve the audience, and where to put the jokes. If you want to give talks that entertain as they inform, he’s an extraordinary guide!"
