Welcome to Australia’s  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. We’re the school, the others schools, gets their idea’s from and that’s because, we don’t just run a school, we also own and operate comedy clubs in Sydney plus themed shows across the country. Our students are the most respected graduates in the country. Why? Results, that’s why. Several of our graduates have made it to the top 3 in the Televised Raw Comedy Completions i.e Ivy Latimore, Billy D’arcy and Katie Burch (Melbourne Comedy Festival), Performed at The Comedy Store (Sydney) Billy D’arcy and Andrew Barnett and performed on Australia’s Got TalentBill Ledingham” to name a few. Other graduates have gone on to win 20 local and national comedy competitions and perform at every Comedy and Fringe Festival across the country. Some graduates like “ Joe White” have headlined and tour each major Australian city plus toured and performed in Canada. One graduate “Kevin Mcisaac”,  has gone on to do several TV Commercials like Dimetapp and KFC, we’ve also been asked to supply comics and audiences for  ‘Minute to win it’, Just for Laughs, Dave Hughes TV Show, ‘Family Feud’, ‘The Observer Effect’ (SBS) and ‘Studio 10’ and so on and so on. Heck, we’ve even trained one of  TV’s Housewives of Melbourne (try to guess which one)

We don’t record and upload our graduates performing to Google, true professionals know that immediately dates their material and makes it old and unusable again. We only record our graduates, live in class, for training and review purposes, and then we record their actual live graduation show, which each student gets a professionally edited copy of the show for their own personal use. Also watching someone in a video clip is not the same as watching them live. We do however, love the fact that other schools study what we do, heck there’s even a school in Melb that has not only borrowed our course curriculum, but even uses our former graduates as instructors. With locations in VIC/SYD/ACT/SA, this course was designed to take you step by step into the mind and world of the stand up comic.  How does our school differ from other schools? Our instructors are from around the world, (USA/NZ/UK/Africa/Asia and Aus) we just don’t prepare you for your local area, 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.


Courses are now offered twice a year in VIC / ACT /SA and 3 times a year ( 3 X 5 week Courses  ) in Sydney. Note: Only 8 students per class. We prefer Quality over quantity.

Now with Lot’s and Lot’s of New Stuff, including longer and larger classes, more industry info, real time student video filming, more stage practice time and instructors! Keep reading!
