Essential masterclass for comics who want to compere more, run their own nights or simply want to get the most out of the MC spot for them and the gig.

Places are limited so that everyone gets the most out of the day. Stephen is a multi award winning compere, comic, writer and Producer. As well as booking and being regular compere for Komedia for 20 years he's one of the most booked MCs for the Comedy Store, has worked all over the world and has written for and produced shows for some of the best known comics in the UK. In the last 2 years he's built Forge Comedy in Brighton from the ground up, creating one of the best clubs in the country.

There is an initial presentation covering technique, use of material, audience interaction, how and when to introduce acts and the common mistakes that comperes make.
After that each participant will perform as a compere, so that their style and content can be evaluated and points for improvement offered. At all our previous workshops attendees have gained at least as much from the critique of others work as their own.

Reviews from our last workshop:
'Stephen's passion and experience really shone through in every minute of this workshop. It was an absolute pleasure to watch a master sharing his craft. There was a vast amount of examples and demonstrations which brought comedy to life. It was a fun interactive supportive learning experience which I'd highly recommend.'

'I just wanted to let you know that Stephen's workshop was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!
Please let me know about other future workshops.'

'Simply the best I’ve ever done, genuinely fantastic stuff. So many great nuggets in there which you’d expect from 25 years on the circuit. He should write a book!'
