Professional comedian James Cook has been running stand-up comedy workshops and courses since September 2010. His clients have included Comic Relief, BBC Radio 2, Warwick Business School, CityPress and The School For Social Entrepreneurs among others.
Not everyone who does a Stand Up Course wants to become a professional comedian, in fact, most people who do it because they want to challenge themselves, or because stand-up is something they're interested in.
Stand-up Courses can help you if you...
want to improve your creativity or presentation skills
are a budding stand-up looking to put together your first act
are interested in comedy and want to meet like-minded people
want to do something exhilarating - or -
You can hire James to run a course for your company/venue/event. The course can be tailored to suit any length, any group size or any age group. Contact James here.
