Stand Up Lincolnshire Workshops’

Have you ever thought you could be a stand-up comedian? Ever wanted to know exactly how it felt to stand in front of an audience of strangers and make them laugh but not had the skills? Well, this year we are offering a maximum of 10 people from around Lincolnshire the opportunity to take the first steps in becoming a stand-up comedian.

A 6 session course with a professional comedian with over 20 years experience in the business will cover Joke Development, Creative writing, Stagecraft, Mic Technique, Memory skills, Comedy timing, Dealing with nerves, Dealing with the dreaded heckler and also the business side of being a stand up. This will then culminate in the first ‘Stand Up Lincolnshire Showcase’ which will take place during the festival on Sunday 6th October.

The course is completely free of charge but a refundable deposit will be required to secure a place. As places are limited please contact in the first instance to register your interest and for more information.

The course will take place at Lincoln Drill Hall starting Tues 3rd September.
