“I always wanted to try stand up comedy, but I didn’t know where to start. The workshop teaches all the performance, stage presence, and writing skills needed to get started in comedy. Ciarán combines a huge passion for comedy with years of experience and a great instinct for drawing out the best performance from each person.” - David, University Lecturer

Starter Pack Notes in Advance of Workshop: You get a starter pack of notes to get you thinking and prepared before the workshops begin. Ideas and themes to write your first 'raw material' before it starts!

"You should go to this workshop because so many people think about doing standup, but not so many take the first step. Ciaran was so good at getting us to relax and pointing out the first steps to standup"

It takes you from the very beginning of 17 different ways to start, how to start, where to begin, the mentality for gathering the raw material, the mindset and themes to think about and trigger exercises to start building the raw material to put your first set together.

Don't worry its great fun, no pressure and you will be surprised how many ideas you get once you see where the ideas come from...

I just need 6 people to start this and get it going -

Sign up while there are still places left!

A fun interactive workshop with notes, slides and videos that you get to work on with weekly writing exercises to start coming up with material to kick start your stand up set!

Six , 3 hour workshops with notes, slides, videos and exercises.

  • You get exercises and ideas for putting together the 'raw material' each week and then come back again to develop it into a set...
  • Notes, slides, video exercises to view and trigger themes and ideas to write about...
  • A video of your showcase performance to share with promoters or your grandchildren.
  1. Gather your Raw Material in the material writing (Week 1-2)
  2. Develop the structure and Presentation (Week 3-4)
  3. Prepare for the final presentation and performance (Week 5-6)

You will have a 5-7minute stand up set that you can then bring to the live showcase at the end of the 6 weeks ( optional for the chickens!) Perfect for any open mic night, so you're ready for open mic, competitions and comedy clubs, and longer sets too! You can also present or read out your set for the last workshop.

  • Pressure free, safe, fun progressive writing classes
  • Ideal for newcomers buildng towards a presentation.
  • No preparation required.
  • Prepares you for a performance at the end.
  • Something to show for yourself - ' I did stand up!'
  • Tick it off the bucket list!
  • Better than another 500 piece jigsaw!

  • Insta: ciaran.comedy
  • Facebook: message on youtalkfunny/facebook

If you would like a chat just contact me and we can have a chat before the course begins.

How does this work:

This is a face to face workshop!!

Once youre signed up, you get the starter pack of notes to trigger ideas for raw material.

Then we arrange a phone or face to face chat with myself ( Ciaran - I'm the teacher!) to familiarise yourself with what to expect... get some tips to think of, so you know what to bring to the picnic!

Small Classes Best Results!

Unlike some courses I keep the capacity low so that everyone gets great feedback throughout the workshops so you know exactly what works best...

We will have max 8 people in the workshops writing ideas weekly to slowly build your own stand up comedy routine.

Remaining fees:

by Revolut/Paypal or bank transfer - details provided after you sign up.

Remaining balance: Fully paid by Tues 6th September or you may lose your place to a latecoming shark!

Everyone emerges confident and ready for live shows !!

If not now - then when? If not you - then who?

Go on! Get in touch, its fun and you share the workshops with like minded people who are also starting off, the cameradery by the end is a great experience.


'For anyone wanting to try standup, learn how to speak in front of an audience or if you think you’re the funniest person on your family..... head along to You talk funny a fantastic course!'

The course is amazing value for money. It’s 3 hours a week for 6 weeks and a gig at the end. Ciaran is incredibly supportive and dedicated. He doesn’t just come to the workshop and do 3 hours and then go. He’s at hand throughout the week if you have any questions, he keeps in touch through email with notes on the class or general information we needed. He really does want you to succeed. The course has been invaluable to me and I wish I was back at the very first class to experience it all over again. Thanks a mill Ciaran.- Therese

'While you may be laughing along at your weekly workshop, through a series of intricate and dynamic exercises Ciaran McMahon draws out the playful side of your personality and creates an atmosphere that is both enjoyable and ideal to dissapate the risks that we associate with public speaking. You find yourself skirting the edges of your comfort zone every week until by the end you have passed through those fear barriers that you didnt expect to ever overcome while all the time having fun and sharing the camaradery, writing and presentation experience with your fellow classmates'

Highly recommended. A fun way to break through those barriers and discover your inner presenter is alive and well and happy to take over when you need to shine!

Please share with anyone you think might be interested - thanks a million!
