Alas we are ALL FULL UP FOR THIS ONE - THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR INTEREST - IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COME ALONG TO THE NEXT ONE NIGHT STAND UP INTRO OR INDEED THE NEXT WORKSHOP - GET IN TOUCH - ON YOUTALKFUNNY/ FACEBOOK, SEND CIARAN A WEE MESSAGE AND HE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED ABOUT THE NEXT UPCOMING EVENT. - MANY THANKS TO ALL WHO ENQUIRED...C.

This workshop is ideally geared for anyone who always wanted to perform stand up before, but didn't know where to start.

It is also for anyone who is interested in writing a brand new Set.

Many people may have experience in other fields of performance/ public speaking...

In all aspects of communication – corporate, professional, or public
this will be the best way to learn CONNECTION, CHARISMA and DELIVERY which will add to any speech, presentation or performance.



This will take you through all of the elements of understanding the expectations of a stand up or any public speaking event progressing from the first week concentratiing on writing then presentation, new set construction, structure, and finally performance. Through a series of fun exercises and different challenges we will assemble the different elements of what makes a very good debut and a strong connection with your audience to deliver a very powerful set that aligns with your personality and humour so that you can overcome any fears and continue to apply the skills, knowledge and attitude to any public speaking environment.

The course culminates with a performance of your brand new set in a showcase where everyone does 5-7minute sets and is then ready to enter the comedy scene or open-mic circuit with strong confident material.

Testimonials from the last workshop in 2019:

‘the value was ah-maz-ing and everyone I've said it too said it was surprisingly cheap...’


This group was a great chance to improve my public speaking and get comfortable making jokes to a crowd. The craic within the group was amazing, it was really fun getting to know everyone and seeing their sense of humour develop!

But actually I'm feeling more confident in life and seeing the humour in things more after the workshop

  • venue was great, it was nice to be working in the Actual space of our gig and getting to see some other gigs afterwards was great for getting a feel of what it would be like on the night.


Overall amazing experience, from Ciaran giving you every piece of advice he has and amazing feedback to the other people in the group who were a constant support. It’s a wonderful course to do if you want to get into stand up comedy, and even if you don’t, it’s still fantastic for the likes of people who may want to improve their presentation or public speaking skills for work.

Before this course I had done 5 gigs. I wanted to this course to gain more confidence and write more material. I suffer with stage fright and I didn’t think it would get any better. Doing this course and having the support of Ciaran and the rest of the group really made a difference. I’m more confident and definitely a lot less nervous than when I started. I looked forward the course every week and will definitely miss the weekly meetups.

Ciaran’s notes and writing exercises really helped me and got the creativity flowing. The best thing is he doesn’t tell you what to write, he just encourages you to write about your own life and experiences. There’s no mistakes, creativity is encouraged and never shot down.

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.

“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
