5 x 2 hour sessions on Zoom 6th September to 4th October 2022 THIS COURSE IS 10AM-12PM UK TIME (final session 9am) 7PM-9PM A.E.S.T. AUSTRALIA TIME (same time every week) Brits, Aussies and other nationalities welcome! With Chris Head I have been running live and online courses for nearing twenty years, have hundreds of graduates and am the author of two books on comedy, "A Director's Guide to the Art of Stand-up" and "Creating Comedy Narratives for Stage & Screen". People find my approach to comedy coaching refreshing, inspiring and stimulating. This course is for gigging comics. It will give you lots of different techniques and approaches for writing stand-up and be inspired to generate lots of ideas and material. It will also sharpen your skills, expand your toolkit and show you new approaches to creating material. HOW IT WORKS Each week there'll be a two hour online class via Zoom - the video of which is shared the following day. In these weekly Zoom sessions we watch, analyse and discuss a wide range of stand-up comedy performances to uncover techniques and approaches to writing stand-up. This leads directly to you generating new ideas and trying out new approaches. We'll also look closely at material written by members of the group to punch it up and get more out of it. Plus the classes feature creative exercises which enable you to come up with ideas for new material in the sessions. You can share your new material with Chris and the group for analysis and inspiring suggestions in a number of ways: - as a video (rehearsal or on stage) - as a script - or as a live performance in the class "I just wanted to say how useful I have found the online course. Very good for making you write about things you wouldn’t normally consider! And looking at old topics with new eyes. I really enjoyed it. So much so I have booked onto the next one." VK You'll leave this course inspired, refreshed and with several minutes of brand new stand-up comedy material and ideas and techniques to create more. "Chris has an encyclopaedic knowledge of stand-up and is really passionate about sharing it. The sessions and activities are well thought through and well structured. Chris has a very engaging style which encourages every participant to progress. The online format works extremely well. Overall a very enjoyable experience." UB
