Stand-up Comedy Joke Writing Workshop

If you've ever had the itch to try stand-up comedy but never knew how to get involved, this is the event for you!

Christchurch has a fantastic wee stand-up scene, and this workshop will serve as a place to bounce new jokes off of each other before they get used on stage. It can be really intimidating turning up to an open mic with a bunch of untested jokes, and we understand that sometimes it's nice to have a bit of reassurance that you're headed in the right direction with your writing before you hit the stage for the first time.

You don't need to have any jokes pre written in order to come along, we do a bunch of creative writing exercises in order to get the juices flowing and every week there will be regular comedians around to run jokes by or get some advice, so you'll be in safe hands.

The workshop should be a safe space to try out any ideas you want, just please note that this goes both ways in that everyone should feel safe to speak their mind when critiquing a joke.

We spend most of the 2 hours doing creative exercises and writing but there is the possibility of getting on stage with a live mic at the end for those who are keen.

Bring a pen and some paper or a notebook with you, it's free to attend but most of us buy a drink as a thank you to the bar for allowing us to use the space and the microphone.

Hope to see some of you budding comedians there, please tag or invite anybody who's been talking about wanting to try stand-up for ages but never got around to it!
