Ipswich Civic Centre presents Ipswich Has Comic Talent – The Workshop

Suppported by Sit Down Comedy Club 

We know that Ipswich Has Comic Talent. So we roped in the pros to help us unearth it.

After 25 years as a professional stand-up comedian; and having taught more than 1000 students across 15+ years, Fiona McGary is now sharing her secrets of comedy success with the people of Ipswich!

Confronting your fears and performing stand-up comedy is one of the most challenging, exhilarating and courageous things you can do for yourself. Learning the art of stand up masters techniques in connecting with any audience and creating powerful, engaging and direct communication.

Fiona’s course will guide you through everything necessary to make it happen. You will learn to be able to see humour in life’s stressful situations and experience a more effective fun approach to life.

The one-day-intensive course will guide you through the process from absolute beginner to performing your first stand up set , from writing your first piece of material to your debut performance.

This course covers:

  • Fear management
  • Discovering your comic attitude
  • How to generate ideas + comedy writing techniques
  • Stage technique

Then, after a couple of weeks of rehearsing and refining your set at home, put your practice into play and jump on stage at Ipswich has Comic Talent- The Show to perform your graduation routine!

The workshops are free and open to ages 15+.

Please note that attending and performing at the Graduation Performance is a part of the Workshop.
