    My classes have featured on BBC Breakfast,The One Show and Russell Howards Good News amongst others.I am also a comic on the pro circuit having done 4 shows at Edinburgh 2015,2016,2017 and 2018.

    OPEN TO ANYONE WHO HAS DONE THE BEGINNERS COMEDY NOVICES COURSE.

    Practice Lab -SPECIFICS
    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.
    6 weeks and 2 guaranteed gigs!
    10 people ONLY allowed on the course.

    Week 1- AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION
    Students get 5 mins onstage to practice asking the audience questions and generating improvised material.Perfect preparation for gigs if you want to show you are a confident comedian.

    Week 2- IMPRO NIGHT
    Students are given topics randomley with no preparation and have 5 minutes to riff,improvise and generate material while perfoming.Rather like Set List the famous comedy show .See You Tube

    Week 3- ONE LINERS
    The homework set the week before is to write one line jokes and deliver them in 5 mins.Great discipline for writing.Editing,pruning and cutting out the fat will surprise you no end.

    Week 4-HECKLING NIGHT
    Very popular night as it boosts your confidence and pre empts situations which can arise at gigs.Students deliver their set whilst the class heckle in varying degrees of severity.Disturbances like dropped glasses,mobile phones etc will be included too

  • 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.
