    6 weeks to take your comedy to a new level.Practice Lab has proved invaluable at giving students a chance to air thoughts verbally,try out material before going public AND learn new approaches for comedy.

    The secret of the course’s success is that there is no pressure to be funny…but purely discover material gauged on the class reaction whilst performing.I will demo the class task at the beginning of each class,then the students do their 5 min sets whilst i make notes.I then give the students feedback on their sets..and the class give feedback on each other.The class often continue the feedback in the pub or at a comedy club visit.

  • Exceptional course; would recommend to everyone! Great if you have an interest in getting out on the circuit and want a safe place to find your voice beforehand. Bentley is enthusiastic, supportive and clear in getting you set on your way. I’d also recommend this to anyone just wanting to push their boundaries, as the boost in confidence that leaks over into general areas of life is unbelieavable too.
