Would you like to be less nervous in unfamiliar situations? Perhaps be more creative when put on the spot? This course uses improv comedy to help you explore your speaking style and personal brand, examine your audiences, and train you to think on your feet while still feeling in control and having a good time.
My takeaway is to accept whatever situation you are in and build the future starting from the (pear-shaped) object in front of you!

The course was run exceptionally well. We were all made to feel immediately comfortable and which meant we were able to push through a large amount of exercises and a good pace without feeling intimidated by the more challenging tasks.

Improv comedy is about being in the present moment, listening carefully and contributing freely. Above all, it is about being open to new situations and possibilities. These core skills are directly transferrable to social and workplace contexts. This immersive weekend course introduces you to the key principles underpinning comedy improvisation while simultaneously creating a more confident you. Our method? A lot of very fun and suitably challenging games, exercises, and techniques that will have you laughing and feeling more confident straight away.
