Ever wanted to perform stand-up comedy? We can provide workshops tailored for budding comics, fun confidence building for children and motivational corporate team-building events.
We at the Funny Farm can help you get up on stage making people laugh by teaching the basics of writing and performing with confidence.
Hazel has been running comedy workshops for beginners since 2004. Past classes have been run at Essex University and Colne College, Brightlingsea, Impington College Cambridge (as part of the Start-Arts initiative) and with Wivenhoe Scouts & Cambridgeshire Scouts & Girl Guides Gang Show Camp, Help for Heroes Recovery Centre, Colchester as well as an ongoing series of classes for all.
The course focuses on building confidence in both writing and performing comedy, and many of our "graduates" are still performing comedy or have reported a huge improvement in their ability to speak in public. One person went on to win a comedy competition after attending a couple of workshops as an absolute beginner.
Hazel has developed a course which uses games and other exercises to help you bring out your inner comic, and write concise funny material. She has taught both adults and teenagers , and is fully CRB checked. She can run courses either one to one or to groups at your place of work or study. Hazel has been trained in motivational techniques and is a qualified TEFL teacher.
Hazel is available to provide workshops to groups, organisations and individuals. Idea for anyone beginning stand-up or comedy performance. A team-building exercise of the course is also available which helps to instill trust and confidence within a group - as well as being great fun!
