About The Course


This is an inspiring new material workshop for course graduates and gigging stand-ups. It runs over two Saturdays (24th November and 1st December 2018) and features a follow-up online component. [Only 15 places]. I've run these courses on and off over several years and people always get lots of new material and ideas from them. Now in a weekend format, the first day will feature an opportunity to present any ideas and bits-and-pieces you have for practical feedback and development ideas. Then there will be a range of stand-up improv exercises and games to inspire ideas. Threaded throughout will be lots of creative insights on working up stand-up material. You will leave the first session with a clear sense of what to develop and how, and lots of starting points for material. You will then have a week to work on it all. The second session will see you bring in the developing work and will also feature lots of inspiration for further angles and new material. After the course there will be the opportunity to share with Chris and the group video of you performing new material from the course in a gig.
