  • Have you ever wanted the to perform at stand-up comedy? 
  • Have you ever wondered what it took to write material that had an audience in stitches?
  • Have you ever fantasized at the thought of making a room full of people laugh ? 

 Well now is your chance!!

Performing stand-up comedy at its best can offer you one of the biggest adrenaline highs legally available and is a truly awesome experience. The feeling you get when an audience laugh at your unique material is amazing. This unique stand-up comedy workshop offers not only the skills to develop your own personal comic style & strategies for the production of your own material, it will also use techniques from NLP and hypnosis that mentally prepare you to get up on stage and perform at your best during a stand-up event. These amazing techniques have been used by Derren Brown and Paul Mc Kenna to boost peoples performance in all walks of life.

In the workshop, both theory and comedic practice will be explored, including comedic structural processes, writing for comedy and detailed analysis of stagecraft. A range of comedic styles and your own preferred personal humour will be examined.

There is no one path to become a comedian. There are so many variables that can influence the comedic outcome of a gig; the venue, the profile of the audience, the expertise and energy levels of the entertainer; all need to be considered, before we even begin to de- construct the content of the material. The material’s appropriateness, delivery, timing and degree of novelty combine in the mix to influence the outcomes of the performance. Due to the combinations of these factors, it is impossible for the conscious mind to control everything that is required, so the course has been developed to help you enhance your utilisation of unconscious creative mind states and teach you to run patterns which will make the experience as fun and exhilarating as possible.

To achieve all of this, you will be taught the skills of self-hypnosis and the use of NLP techniques to teach you new strategies in developing personal creativity, in overcoming stress and stage fright, speaking in public and creating a stand-up performance persona that is congruent with your aspirations.

The course is run by  and by Blane Savage, a clinical hypnotherapist, NLP training specialist &  author together with stand-up comedian John O’Brien (Obie).
