Stand up and deliver

formerly known as Stand Up And Deliver

All our current courses, taster evenings, workshops, seminars and training are listed below.

Our best known and most frequent course is the Absolute And Almost Beginners comedy course led by Luke Toulson and Markus Birdman with start dates most months on weekday evenings (in rehearsal studios) and weekend afternoons (in rehearsal studios or comedy venues) in central London.  Occasionally there are introductory 'taster' sessions. 

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

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