Next Workshop:

Fridays 3pm-5pm 7 October – 31 october 2016

 

Our standup comedy program for adults takes you from the fundamentals of comedy writing all the way through creating your own first standup comedy set. With our supportive instruction, anyone can do stand-up.

The course is practical, intensive and fun and focuses extensively on generating, writing and performing your own material.

At the end of the 6 week workshops you will have the opportunity to perform your 3-5 minute set in front of a friendly audience and be fully armed to continue your comedy development.

The workshop is lead by award winning, popular local comedian and co-founder of Dubai Laughing, Salman Z Qureshi who has been described by Ahlan magazine as a 'leading light of the UAE comedy scene'.

"Salman Z Qureshi is one of the Middle East's best comics. His workshops are exactly what you need if you want to learn stand up as a potential career, be a better, funnier presenter at work or to have your kids actually laugh at your jokes not at you directly. Highly recommended course - get on it!" - Jessica Pratt
