      Melbourne: Learn Stand-up Comedy - Evenings: May 26 - 30, 2019

      THE SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCK KNOCKS (SHKK) 5-evening stand-up comedy course runs from Sunday to Thursday, 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm, from May 26 to 30, 2019. You'll get the SHKK comedy manual, video of your graduating performance, and lots of coaching from the loveable Evan Hocking, as well as our guest comedian, David Tulk. Plus, our very own alumna, Lisa Gatenby, will be joining our course to talk about her recent Raw Comedy experience. Day 1: Sunday - The Basics & Joke Structure (with Evan Hocking) Meet the rest of the students, perform two-minutes of stand-up, and learn comedy writing techniques, like 'Normal-Normal-Twist'. Day 2: Monday - Preparation & Generating Content (with guest comedian, David Tulk) Understand your A.U.D.I.E.N.C.E. and develop content through creative writing techniques. We'll also teach you how to write taboo jokes. Day 3: Tuesday - Building Confident & Delivery (with returning alumna, Lisa Gatenby) Build your confidence through body language and eye contact. Also, learn how to use volume, tone, speed, and pauses to great affect.  Day 4: Wednesday - Controlling a Room & The Close (with Evan Hocking) Practice delivering your set as well as building skills to deal with the dreaded (or welcomed) heckler before polishing a strong close to your set ready for tomorrow's graduation ceremony. Day 5: Thursday - Graduation Night and Performance (with Ben Horowitz, guest comedian and returning alumnus) The moment you have been working toward! Perform your stand-up comedy routine in front of family and friends, conquer your fears and perform alongside Evan Hocking, David Tulk, and Lisa Gatenby.
