Event Details

The Funny Side Stand-up Comedy Course

Starting September 4th (7 Mondays: 7.00pm-9.30pm)

The course will run weekly for 6 Mondays and on the 7th Monday there will be a 'graduation' show.

We are delighted to announce the return of the Funny Side stand-up course under senior award-winning comedian and trainer David James.

David James tutor and host at the showcase Feb 2017

David has very definite ideas on how to prepare stand-up comedians for the stage. Our course starts by concentrating on the quality of the material and the writing. David develops and tests the various sources of good material until each participant is proficient in all types. When the quality of the material stands on its own feet the course starts to concentrate more on delivery and the nuances of performance such as pauses, props and persona.

The participants will become experienced with a microphone and dealing with an audience, be encouraged to develop their own style, and will receive plenty of feedback along the way aimed at preparing them for a short spot in a showcase in week seven.

David's experience as a stand-up and also a coach combine to give participants the confidence to get up on their feet, alone, with a microphone and with their own material, from the word go. Not to be missed.

David (at age 61) won third place at the prestigious New Act of the Year awards at the Hackney Empire in 2009. He gigs regularly in London and the south east and is also an established trainer and coach. He not only prepares new comedians for the stage but also runs workshops for business on the use of humour at work.

Dates: There will be classes on September 4th,11th, 18th, 25th October 2nd and 9th and a show on 16th October.

Times: 7.00pm-9.30pm

Prices: £199 (or £169 concessions).

Venue: The venue for all classes will be The City College, 55 East Road, London N1 6AH.

The graduation show, will be at one of the London Funny Side comedy clubs.
