Description

THE SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCK KNOCKS (SHKK) 5-evening stand-up comedy course runs from Sunday to Thursday, 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm, from November 24 to 28, 2019. You'll get the SHKK comedy manual, video of your graduating performance, and lots of coaching from our resident comedian, Gerry Masi (aka Mad Dog Malcolm), as well as our guest comedian, Marc Ryan, and returning alumnus, Paul Young.

Day 1: Sunday - The Basics & Joke Structure (with Gerry Masi)

Meet the rest of the students, perform two-minutes of stand-up, and learn comedy writing techniques, like 'Normal-Normal-Twist'.

Day 2: Monday - Preparation & Generating Content (with Marc Ryan)

Understand your A.U.D.I.E.N.C.E. and develop content through creative writing techniques. We'll also teach you how to write taboo jokes.

Day 3: Tuesday - Building Confidence & Delivery (with Paul Young)

Build your confidence through body language and eye contact. Also, learn how to use volume, tone, speed, and pauses to great affect. Learn about the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the open mic scene with returning alumnus, Paul Young.

Day 4: Wednesday - Controlling a Room & The Close (with Gerry Masi)

Practice delivering your set as well as building skills to deal with the dreaded (or welcomed) heckler before polishing a strong close to your set ready for tomorrow's graduation ceremony.

Day 5: Thursday - Graduation Night and Performance
(with Gerry Masi, Marc Ryan and Paul Young)

The moment you have been working toward! Perform your stand-up comedy routine in front of family and friends, conquer your fears and perform alongside three professional comedians, to a paying audience.
