AdvertisementThis English-language workshop is aimed at people identifying as women and/or queer who have limited or no experience writing and performing stand-up comedy.
In this workshop, you will:
explore the basics of joke writing;
create your first written jokes;
fine tune that material through working with others;
learn new ways to generate fresh punchlines and time their delivery.
There will be an opportunity to perform the jokes you develop during this workshop at an open mic the same day at 18:00. The open mic will be held at Le Croque Bedaine in Limpertsberg.
