FIND YOUR FUNNY
STAND-UP COMEDY BEGINNERS WORKSHOP
Stand-Up Comedy is the toughest form of public speaking, but also the most rewarding. The Funny Coast Beginners Workshop is lead by the Funny Coast crew, all professional working Comedians; Jacques Barrett, Mick Neven and Nicky Wilkinson, who have almost 50 years of comedy performing experience between them.
If you've never performed Stand-Up before, they’ll take you from the couch to your first 5 min set in just 2 weekends! If you have performed Stand-Up before, they'll sharpen your act, help you to write new material & put you on the fast track to paid gigs.
The course covers joke writing, comedy styles, stagecraft, techniques to tackle your fear of public speaking and nervousness onstage, the business of comedy and more.
Whether you’d like to become a Comedian, a better public speaker, or simply tick Stand-up Comedy off your bucket list, this course will help you navigate the early pitfalls and avoid the simple mistakes made by so many comedy newbies.
WHEN & WHERE?
The 3 x workshops will take place on:
Saturday 11, Sunday 12, Saturday 18 May
Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre
2 Fifth Avenue
The Graduation Show will take place on:
Sunday 19 May
10/12-20 Ocean Street
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
If you're a total beginner, we'll help you write your first 5 minute set and get 'stage ready' to perform it at the graduation show. If you've done a few gigs, we'll help you sharpen your act and write some new material.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
A notepad, a pen and an open mind. We will provide water and some light refreshments.
That's normal. We all have to start somewhere and this is the place for you. It's a safe space to share your ideas and find the funny in them. We got you!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Cannot recommend these guys enough!! Had a blast doing the comedy course.
It is always a pleasure to work with professionals, with people who have extensive experience in their field and inspire future projects.
It's always a great time with the Funny Coast Comedy mob.
Top-shelf comics making the world laugh hard.
Great workshop! Highly recommend for those wanting to try stand up. The tutors are fantastic and supportive. It's structured really well.
It was brilliant. Extremely well presented over 3 weekends with knowledgeable, highly skilled, kind & professional comedians.
I've been to many Funny Coast shows which have all been great! I recently completed their Beginners Workshop which was both an amazing and terrifying experience that I'll never forget!
Would recommend to anybody looking to push the boundaries of their comfort zone & engage in a process of writing jokes that genuinely makes everything in life a bit more bright
Highly recommend to any one thinking about getting up on stage for 5 minutes and being funny, to anyone that wants to improve their public speaking skills or just wants to have a go.
I can't stop thinking about the stand-up course that Funny Coast run. It was the best! You should definitely get along.
If you are thinking about doing this you definitely should! It was excellent!! This course will transform you from the class clown into a semi confident 1st year apprentice comic in just a short few days.
The tutors' energy & experience gave me the knowledge & confidence to step-up into Stand-up. I'm looking forward to more! Thank you guys, here's to the next step.
Loved the Funny Coast Comedy Workshop. Great tutors who helped with ideas.
It was a bit outside my comfort zone but well worth it.
