Susan Morrison | Jojo Sutherland | Paul Sneddon | Jay Lafferty FAQ Do I need experience of any kind to do the course? Nope. Do I have to take part in the showcase? Nope. Some people might be interested in the writing aspect of comedy, some others may find the course invaluable to improve public speaking outside of the comedy world and yet others may just want to find out how its done. So, no, the showcase isn’t compulsory What do I need for the course? Just you. Do we get fed? We don’t offer a lunch option, but there are many great places to grab a bite surrounding the Stand, or you can bring a packed lunch. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits will be available throughout the day. What do we get? You’ll come out with a set you can perform on any comedy stage. We’ll provide you with a list of open mic night and club contacts to start you on your way, AND you’ll be getting that invaluable tool of all comedians – the notebook. Every student will get a branded Stand Academy notebook and pen. I’ve been given this as a gift, but the date doesn’t suit. Can I change it?
