Comedy courses are becoming increasingly popular across the UK, but what is unique about Ultra Comedy is that it is completely free! We offer you 8 weeks of free coaching with a professional comic and at the end of this, you get to test out your material at one of the best comedy clubs in the UK from The Glee Clubs to London’s Backyard comedy club.

There are lots of reasons for you to take part in a comedy course but let’s break down why you should choose Ultra Comedy:

Meet new people and have a laugh

Our Ultra Comedy courses will place you together with a group of people who are all there to learn about comedy. You’ll listen to each other’s sets, give feedback to each other and share ideas – its a great way to make new friends.

Boost your confidence

Whether you are interested in getting into stand up comedy or just want to take part as a one-off, Ultra Comedy is a great way to boost your confidence and help with public speaking. Our comedy coaches will teach you how to deliver lines or a story in a comedic way and this will help you to perform on stage, with confidence, that you can carry over into your everyday life whether it’s presentations at work or just talking to new people.

Raise money for Cancer Research UK

To take part in Ultra Comedy we ask that you raise a minimum of £50 for Cancer Research UK during your 8 weeks of training. It’s a fun way to fundraise for a cause close to the heart of so many people across the UK. We have a dedicated fundraising team from the charity on hand to help provide you with hints and tips and materials to aid your fundraising.

Learn a new skill

You may believe ‘you can’t learn to be funny’ – we are here to tell you that is not true! You can learn to be funny, you just have to know how to phrase it and how to say it and that’s what we are here to teach you. We have professional comics from around the UK who have experience on the comedy circuit and can help you to structure your writing and perform to a crowd.

Break into Comedy

If you are looking to take part in a comedy course to help you break into the comedy scene Ultra Comedy is a great entryway. Not only will you learn from a pro, but you’ll also get to perform in some of the best comedy clubs in the UK, it’s a great gig to have on your comedy CV and will help you to meet new connections in the world of comedy. Many Ultra Comedy alumni have gone onto perform regularly on the comedy circuit or host open mic nights.

Perform at an amazing comedy club

At the end of your training, you will perform at one of the UK’s top comedy clubs. These clubs have an incredible history and some of the best comedians in the UK have performed at these clubs and some still do. Whether you are into comedy or not it’s a pretty cool thing to say you have achieved!

When we launched Ultra Comedy we got told ‘you can’t learn to be funny’ which we believe is absolutely false. You can 100% learn to be funny, it’s all about what you say, and how you say it – and that’s what we are here to teach you. If you’re naturally the class clown or the joker of your group, that’s great you already have a head start – but if you’re not you can certainly learn how to deliver a one-liner or a story to have your friends and family in stitches.

Like everything in life, you get out of something what you put into it – practice makes perfect as they say. At Ultra Comedy we give you 8 weeks of free training with a professional comic who has experience performing on the comedy circuit and can give you all the tricks of the trade. You’ll learn how to structure your comedic writing for stand-up, how to perform to an audience, and that all important comedic timing.

These courses aren’t competitive, it’s collaboration. You’ll listen to each other’s sets, give feedback to each other and share ideas – it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends but also learn a skill which could help boost your confidence not only socially but also in your work and family life too.

Performing in front of an audience can be a scary experience; it’s the job of our comedy coaches to make sure you are prepared. They will give you weekly notes on your material, give you starting ideas to help get you writing and they’ll be on hand to ask questions and inspire you. Not only that – but they are really funny and they will make your 8 weeks FUN – after all, it is a comedy course.

By the end of the 8 week course you will be armed with your new material and ready to stand up and some of the UK’s biggest and best comedy clubs to make your friends and family laugh. Not only that but you’ll have raised some all important funds for charity in the process. What better way to do something for charity and have a laugh.

Taking a comedy course is a great way to break into comedy or even start a new hobby. Many Ultra Comedy alumni have gone on to perform regularly on the comedy scene with some even forming their own open mic nights. Even if you just want to do it as a one-off to help boost your confidence or challenge yourself to perform a set to a crowd – Ultra Comedy is for you.

 Anyone can do it, so what’s stopping you?
