Sprout Ideas Pete More Stand Up

Our first online intermediate level stand-up comedy course will start on Tuesday 7th September 2021.

This course will run weekly online on Zoom for 4 Tuesdays at 7pm and on the 5th Tuesday (October 5th) there will be an online 'graduation' show.

The course will be available at the price of £89.00 (£69.00 concessions) for ALL five sessions.

Want to take your stand-up performance to the next level? This course is aimed at new performers who have completed a stand-up beginner’s course and/or performed several open mic gigs.

We’ll look at...
Material - More ways to develop, heighten and tighten your material as well as building a writing routine and crashing through writer’s block
Delivery - Tools for raising your delivery (vocal, physical and time/rhythm-related)
Persona - How you can find, tweak and further develop your stage persona
Audience – How you can be responsive to the audience
Gigs/Professionalism - Getting gigs and acting like a professional long before there’s any money in it

The course will encourage you to experiment and push yourself. You will be encouraged to set your own goals, identify areas to improve as well as recognise what you do well.

The course is five weeks including a showcase open to friends, relatives and the public to show the world you 2.0.

Note: The course includes homework assignments because the magic doesn’t just happen at show time.

This class takes place online via a zoom meeting allowing students from across the country (and the world) take part. After booking you will be emailed your log-ins for the classes.

Your tutor will be comedian, writer and improviser Pete More who has been teaching stand-up for nearly 10 years. As a performer, he founded two clubs in Amsterdam. In recent years, at least 4 former students had shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
