How I Can Help with your Stand-up


I can help you in a lot of different ways with your stand-up - so many different ways in fact that I thought I'd write a blog on it so you can see in one place what I do.


ONE-TO-ONE SESSIONS

I work one-to-one with stand-ups on Zoom, in person in London and also where I live in Stroud in Gloucestershire. I can help you make material tighter and funnier, make it optimally structured and help you develop your performance and persona. Contact me to discuss what help you need and how best we can work together. chris@chrishead.com


ONLINE COURSES VIA ZOOM

I run courses online for comedians who are already gigging. On these courses we work on developing new material and I also give everyone feedback on their act as we watch and discuss clips of your performance in class.

IN PERSON STAND-UP COURSES

For approaching twenty years I have run an in person stand-up course for beginners and improvers in Soho, London. This runs three times a year. I also run it annually in Stroud, Gloucestershire where I live.

DEVELOPING AND DIRECTING FESTIVAL AND TOURING SHOWS

I also work as director on a number of live comedy shows each year. Most commonly for shows that are heading to Edinburgh Fringe but I also work on shows for other festivals and tours, and I can also work remotely with acts who are abroad - for example I am currently working with an Australia based act on a show for Sydney Comedy Festival. Contact me to discuss. chris@chrishead.com

And here are examples of my directing work


MY BOOKS

And you can also get my help and input via the medium of the printed (or digital) word! My first book "A Director's Guide to the Art of stand-up" has a lot of material and perspectives you won't find elsewhere and it's good for club comics and also for when you're working on that Edinburgh, other festival, or touring show. My second book "Creating Comedy Narratives for Stage & Screen" also gives you lots of stand-up tips and insights within a broader context covering sitcom/comedy drama, sketch and improv too.
