You’ll get the SHKK comedy manual, video of your graduating performance, and lots of coaching from a 20 year veteran of the comedy circuit – Dave Ivkovic, as well as guest comedians, Doug Chappel and Ben Horowitz.

Day 1 – Sunday: The Basics & Joke Structure yourself

You’ll be kicking off the night with your performing 2 minutes of your own material. Our resident comedy teacher, Dave Ivkovic, will then be able to gauge your current ability and confidence. After this, Dave will introduce the basics of comedy, the jargon of the comedic industry, three different joke structures, after which you’ll get to practice.

Day 4 Wednesday: Controlling a Room & The Close (with Doug Chappel)

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, with a healthy critique from comedy legend, Doug Chappel.

Day 5 Thursday: Graduation Night and Performance

The moment you have been working toward! Perform your own stand-up comedy routine in front of family and friends, conquer your fears and perform alongside Dave Ivkovic, and two veterans of comedy, Doug Chappel and Ben Horowitz.
