A Weekend Comedy Course With Added Banana...

I had a brilliant weekend teaching this fabulous and funny group of people on my June Weekend Comedy Course at Brighton's Komedia. Their relaxed and friendly show on stage with lights and microphone in Komedia's intimate Studio Bar to end their comedy course weekend was fantastic too! 

Kate Jones was on my course to brush-up her existing stand-up skills and get some advice from me. I told her about new act competition "So You Think You're Funny" over the weekend. She managed to get into a competition heat last minute. And Kate got through to the "So You Think You're Funny" semi-finals at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! It's happened before with a weekend comedy course participant who's already got a few gigs under their belt. I'm delighted it's happened again.

We had a lot of fun over the weekend, although I wouldn't recommend using a banana to practise your microphone technique at home...

I'm looking forward to doing it all again with my January 2016 Weekend Comedy Course.
