Next dates 30th June to 28th July 2022 Incredibly effective online stand-up comedy writing sessions for you if: - you are a gigging comedian - or are a comic who has had a break from stand-up and is wanting to get back into it (For beginners I teach live courses in London and I teach elsewhere by invitation.) "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 This course is for you if: - You want new material. - You have run dry of inspiration or have got out of the habit of writing. - You want to get more out of your existing material or refresh material that isn’t working as well as it once did. What you'll get out of doing the course: - Find out all the techniques that stand-ups use in their writing that you’re not currently using! We do this by analysing stand-up clips of your choosing to uncover techniques you can use (and you’ll be surprised how looking at these clips with fresh eyes and an analytical lens will uncover techniques you haven’t consciously put a name to). - Discover how to get more out of your existing material. There are always places you can take material that you haven’t thought of – and often this is going into the playful hypothetical space that all top stand-ups explore - and also ways to punch up what you have to make it land more strongly. - Breath new life into material that has stagnated. Many times comedians have material that worked when they first did it and now doesn’t work so well. Find out why this is and how to fix it. - Gain inspiration for thinking about new topics for your stand-up and familiar topics in new ways. There will be inspiring online brainstorming in the session and creative exercises to play with that will open up ideas. - Work with stand-up writing ‘homeworks’ that will get you creating new material. Each session I give a writing homework that will get the creative juices flowing. Then you can share that work-in-progress in the group for practical feedback on making it better and making it work. You'll leave this course inspired, with new material and old material - and ideas and techniques to create more. (This course runs often and you can return for fresh inspiration.)
