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 July 22 to 26, 2018. You'll get the SHKK comedy manual, video of your graduating performance, and lots of coaching from a 16 year veteran of the comedy circuit - Ben Horowitz, as well as guest comedians.

Day 1: Sunday - The Basics & Finding yourself

Introduction to the basics of stand-up comedy and the jargon of the comedic industry before launching into the deep end with your very own mini set.

Day 2: Monday - Your Audience and Taboos

Learn to gauge your audience and how to recognise and manage taboo topics while learning confidence building/ fear smashing techniques.

Day 3: Tuesday - The Opener (with guest comedian)

Learn to write a strong open to your comedy set. Tonight students will also have the opportunity to refine some of their own writing with our guest comedian.

Day 4: Wednesday - The Heckler and The Closer

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 guest comedian)

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. Receive feedback from our panel of judges and your very own video of your performance.
