“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

'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 a space 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 experience with your fellow novices.'

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!
