Stand up and deliver

formerly known as Stand Up And Deliver

"I have been on several stand up comedy courses but this is the best, and we are given plenty of stage practice which allows for a rapid learning curve with such an enthusiastic tutor": Vic, June 2018

"Your course was very good and I enjoyed the sessions, which have given me confidence and enthusiasm. I recommend it to anyone": Phil, May 2018

Amused Moose Comedy courses are listed below including our best known and most frequent course, the Absolute And Almost Beginners, with start dates most months on weekday evenings (in rehearsal studios) and weekend afternoons (usually in comedy venues) in central London.  It has a longstanding reputation for being the best there is outside USA, and the course leaders have developed their own approaches, with results that are always awe inspiring.  This course, originally led by Logan Murray, is recommended by Josh Widdicombe, Rhod Gilbert and Greg Davis who were amongst the first graduates.

Occasionally there are introductory Try Comedy Taster sessions, for those who want to check out the courses. 
Or come along to a Graduation Showcase to see for yourself how amazingly those on the most recent course have become.

Additionally we run a number of courses for gigging comedians, comedy performers and graduates of the Beginners course, such as Progression for Stand Ups, The Complete Compere and Sketch & Character Comedy.

Our graduates are onstage at every comedy festival around the world, on your televisions (doing stand-up, as comedy actors and presenters, on panel shows or in their own sitcoms) every day, write for television and radio comedy shows/sitcoms, and have won every comedy award including BAFTAs.
