Stand Up School-Dec 2017



Note: Australia's # 1 School of Stand up Comedy with locations in WA/SYD/VIC/QLD/ACT will close it's in Dec 2017. Thanks to the hundreds of students who have passed through our doors, and have gone on to make thousands of people laugh. We wish you all, lots more laughs and tons of success. We will however, be conducting our FINAL classes across the country, up until Dec 2017, so here's your last chance to take the Stand up comedy plunge and book in before we close our doors for good.


Welcome to Australia's  # 1 school of stand up comedy. Since 2008, we've trained more men and women to be stand up comics, then all the other stand up schools combined. With locations in VIC/SYD/SA/QLD/ACT/WA, this course was designed to take you step by step into the mind and world of the stand up comic.  Where our schools differ from other schools is, we just don't prepare you for your local area only, our curriculum prepares you for Local, National and International performances. The art of user friendly performances differ in Australia, USA, The UK and even Asia. Due to popular demand across the country plus running comedy shows and rooms in Sydney, we've had to reduce our course frequency in 2017. Courses now offered only twice a year in SA/VIC/ACT/QLD/WA and 4 times a year ( 2 X 5 week Course and 2 X 5 day course ) in Sydney.  NEW for 2017: Lot's and Lot's of New Stuff, including longer and larger classes, more industry info, practice time and instructors!
