Hello there you!

There have been many people who did their first comedy gig and have since been gigging a lot in clubs in Dublin and beyond -

After several gigs you may have noticed that it is not just about preparing and delivering material but making that material fit to the room you are playing. Some comedians are terrified to talk to the audience - some fear heckles or don't know what to do with them.

Many have said to me they are very happy with their material but the real crux of stand up is connecting to the audience...
How do you connect with a room?
How do you create that energy on stage for yourself?
How do you get the best response from the audience for your set?

So this course is to develop the mentality of audience awareness:

  • Making a strong impact in the beginning of your set.
  • Reading the Room - adjusting your set to make the strongest connection.
  • Responding and reacting to the audience.
  • Tailoring your material to suit the room.
  • Thinking on your feet - being more spontaneous up there.
  • Making connections during your set to the audience and your material.


This is best served for comedians that may have done the beginners workshop and/ or are regularly gigging as I do not intend to have a gig at the end of the course but rather what we touch on what is reflected in the gigs that you are doing currently. ( I suggest you try to get some short gigs to accompany the course)

The course is for developing, thinking about and delivering the material you have in a better way, that makes more impact.

The intention is to understand and identify the best mindset to approach an audience and certain invisible 'rules' that I have learned over the 20 years I have been on stage to get the best reaction from an audience or as it is commonly known ' crowd work'.


Please do share this with anyone you might know who might be interested,


Many thanks again folks,


Ciaran

‘One of the best courses I have done, ever…’

...and I have been on a LOT of courses! Well done Ciarán ‘ - Louise – Stand Up/ Actor/ Accountant


'... it was a mix of Ciaran's honesty and attention to the finer details in what you were trying to do. He obviously has an experienced comedy brain. But in my opinion he looked past what you were saying and was able to look and listen to what you were -trying to say, which is exactly what is needed to develop new material. I felt I didn't need to explain the direction I wanted to go, Ciaran clearly identified it quickly and spoke directly to my sense of humour.'

‘I can't imagine a more supportive and step by step introduction, with a very experienced teacher who knows how to run a workshop...’
– John -English Teacher –
(John received Audience Voted Best Act- Battle of the Axe - 1st gig after the workshop. Since Best Newcomer 2019)

'The intro prep for me was excellent, I had thought about it a lot previously and had realised that when I had watched other comics I had been paying attention to their journey to the stage and how they behaved before they spoke..but the workshop demonstrated to me the importance of an intro. I would recommend the course to anyone that has an interest in comedy..either starting out or a veteran.'

The classes are really good value for money,
brilliant fun and improved my confidence a lot...


Since I came into the workshop I have been thinking of new, funny things to write about and seeing the lighter side of everyday life. I feel much more confident in meetings at work too.

‘Great place to meet fun and interesting people ‘
‘Really good for confidence
– much more fun than any other drama courses I have done that were a lot more expensive.’

‘...was on a total high for the next couple of days after each workshop’

'The course was an excellent idea and was genuinely good fun. The atmosphere and positive environment created, actually made me seek the participants out to stay in contact with for the future. I'm not normally like that but Ciaran set a good platform for everyone to engage and bounce off one another'


'Cannot recomend this man enough, he guided me through improv, stand up material production and presentation, radio plays and mime theatre. Thanks to Mr. Ciaran McMahon I had the confidance and resources to work on my first international co-production , Acting for TV and Cinema' - Justin, Writer, Actor, Performer.

'One of my early improv mentors and one of the most experienced MCs in Ireland is doing this workshop folks...Check it out' John Lawler -No Drama Theatre

'This is a great course and Ciaran McMahon is extremely helpful and supportive...top drawer dude.'
