TRY COMEDY Taster afternoon with MARKUS BIRDMAN.

Your Try Comedy afternoon is led by

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

Our next occasional TRY COMEDY taster afternoon happens on Sunday 24 November 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.  It is so well regarded now that people come from as far as Los Angeles to take part.

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 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 Afternoon.  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 one of the Beginners Comedy Course in 2020.

You can book in beforehand by clicking the BOOK HERE box above and below
