      Melbourne: Learn Stand-up Comedy - Evenings: October 20 - 24, 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 October 20 to 24, 2019. You'll get the SHKK comedy manual, video of your graduating performance, and lots of coaching from our resident comedy coach, Brad Oakes, our celebrity guest comedian, Michael Connell, and our returning alumnus, Warrick Sutton. Day 1: Sunday - The Basics & Joke Structure (with Brad Oakes) 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 Michael Connell) 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 Warrick Sutton) 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 Brad Oakes) 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 Brad Oakes, Michaell Connell and Warrick Sutton) 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 three professional comedians, to a paying audience.
