We're sorry to announce that due to unavoidable circumstances this workshop has been cancelled. We hope to bring it back another day!

Aimed firmly at beginners, this two day course could be the platform you need to escape the hum-drum of the office job and become a comedy star in the making.

You are taken on a journey from social joker to stage performer in just 2 days, Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st April, 10:30am to 4:30pm each day with a performance starting at 3pm on Sunday 21st.

This is a rare opportunity to attend his course outside of London.

Your tutor, Mike Gunn, has seen it all in his 25 years as a professional stand-up comedian and has been sharing his extensive knowledge through teaching at The Comedy Store for the last few years. With his vast stage experience, Mike will help students hone their timing, engage with audiences, perfect their mic technique, deal with hecklers, and teach the secrets of constructing hilarious jokes and stories.

The course ends with a performance, open to the public, where each student performs five minutes in front of a live audience. Students will be given a number of tickets to the final event which they can give to family and friends, or even sell to raise funds for their future comedy adventures.

So what are you waiting for? Comic stardom beckons...
