    TRIGGER HAPPY

    Want to get more laughs in your set? Then come to Trigger Happy!

    Michael Hughes presents this fab workshop empowering your comedy talents massively!

    In Trigger Happy we will learn the 8 laugher triggers – proven approaches to trigger laughter. These approaches have been used by comics consciously, unconsciously and successfully for years. We will learn what these laughter triggers are and how to use them to create more and better material.

    Trigger Happy can give your writing direction and help you look at topics from a different angle. Each laughter trigger is explained, demonstrated and broken down step-by-step so you can start using them immediately.

    Trigger Happy is suitable for novices and more experienced comics keen to improve their writing. Join us and take your comedy to the next level!

  • 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.
