TRY COMEDY Taster Evening with MARKUS BIRDMAN and Comedy Training Courses, in central London.

This evening's workshop leader:

MARKUS BIRDMAN   ("Uniquely talented": Evening Standard. "Completely spell-binding": Chortle)  

This summer our occasional TRY COMEDY taster evening happens on 16 May in central London, and will interest people who want a taste of our comedy courses, and maybe to meet the course leader, before enrolling.

So come along to find out for yourself about of the frequently recommended Absolute and Almost Beginners Comedy Course in one of Amused Moose Comedy’s London venues in central London.  And if you are interested in our Sketch+Character Comedy course, which is also run by Comedy Training Courses, you'll be just as welcome.

You will meet our amiable, experienced course leader and professional stand up comedian Markus Birdman, who will supportively encourage you to get onstage for your first taste of stand-up, sketch or character comedy, after picking up some performance tips.  And of course you can ask whatever questions you have.

The session will be led by Markus Birdman who, with over 18 years experience, is one of stand-up’s most well respected and well travelled British comedians, much in demand across the UK and internationally.  TimeOut has featured Markus in their Top Ten Comedians list; his extensive comedy CV is here.  He has appeared on television around the globe (including Festival Galas, and a Netflix Special in Amsterdam), had nominations and won numerous comedy awards at the Edinburgh Fringe and as far afield as New Zealand and Australia, and in London appears at Soho Theatre, the O2 and The Comedy Store.  Also Markus leads comedy courses, after working with Lancaster University Performing Arts and as a qualified FE tutor. 

We are really looking forward to seeing you enjoying yourself TRYING COMEDY at the Taster Evening.  In fact we are so confident that you'll have such a brilliant time that we will refund your Taster fee of £20 when you sign up to either the Beginners or the Sketch+Character Comedy Course during 2018

You can pay in advance (email to arrange that), or just come along and pay the £20 in cash.

Venue: Karma Sanctum Hotel, 20 Warwick St, Soho, London W1B 5NF

Date and time: 7.30 on Wednesday 16 May

            to chat afterwards so don't plan to rush off straightaway.

If you want more information about the Taster Evening, or to find out more about our frequent comedy courses, or perhaps if you can't make it to this Taster Afternoon so would like to enrol quickly for the Absolute & Almost Beginners or Sketch & Character Comedy courses to avoid the chance of it being full and then having to wait for another one to come along with dates which suit you, please email
