led by STEVE BEST on MONDAY EVENINGS in central London.

“Top comedy courses”: Chortle.co.uk

This course will introduce you in a fun, friendly and supportive environment to the exciting world of stand-up comedy. 

Whether you are keen to become a comedian or comedy writer, or have a best man's speech coming up, want to be more confident making presentations at work, or it is on your bucket list or you simply want an enjoyable new experience, this course is described as a "magical" experience.

Amused Moose comedy courses often fill up ages ahead so don't delay enrolling
or you mey be too late to get a place, so then have to wait a while for another one with dates that suit you

Unlike most comedy courses, ours are led by current headline comedians who regularly perform at the biggest and best comedy clubs in the UK and abroad.

Importantly your course leader Steve Best is really experienced at teaching stand up, being the comedy lecturer at Middlesex University's Performance & Drama department since 2011.  He is recommended enthusiastically (and there is nothing as good as recommendation) by their course director:

"Steve is a fantastic teacher-practitioner. 
Everyone always really enjoy working with him, benefitting immensely from his generous insights as a professional comedian and his thoughtful and supportive approach to teaching performance skills. 
Steve's engaging group workshops provide excellent advice, helping everyone construct comedy material and discovering effective, funny ways of performing it."

There is also feedback from people who have graduated from the course:

"Steve Best was a fantastic mentor and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it"
"Brilliant advice (about) the comedy industry"
"Highly recommended"

Also uniquely we limit the number of people on this particular course to 6, to ensure everyone gets lots of individual advice, guidance and encouragement.

Amused Moose Comedy courses (“Top comedy courses”: Chortle.co.uk) are the most affordable around, despite the added-value of being in small groups and of being tutored by awardwinning up-to-date comedians.

During the course you will learn how to:

  • Create comedy routines.
  • Write jokes using a variety of structures.
  • Properly use a microphone.
  • Give a great first impression.
  • Connect with your audience.
  • Deal with nerves.
  • Perform confidently on stage.

Incidentally Steve is described by other comedians as "a comedy legend" - click here to see why, and maybe here too.  He is a joy, and extraordinarily perceptive about comedy.  We are thrilled that he is now leading Amused Moose Comedy courses.
