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?
