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 August 25 to 29, 2019. You'll get the SHKK comedy manual, video of your graduating performance, and lots of coaching from an 18 year comedy veteran, Ben Horowitz, as well as our guest comedian.

Day 1: Sunday - The Basics & Joke Structure (with Ben Horowitz)

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 guest comedian)

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 Confident & Delivery (with returning alumnus)

Build your confidence through body language and eye contact. Also, learn how to use volume, tone, speed, and pauses to great affect.

Day 4: Wednesday - Controlling a Room & The Close (with Ben Horowitz)

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 Ben Horowitz, guest comedian and returning alumnus)

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 Ben Horowitz, and two other professional comedians, to a paying audience.
