Masterclass: Intro to Stand-Up Comedy with Ruth Cockburn


Have you always wanted to try stand-up comedy? Or perhaps you just want to learn how to be a funnier, more confident speaker?

This introductory session will teach you how to build a comedy set, construct an on stage persona and how to be silly by not taking life too seriously.

After her first stand up comedy gig in 2008 at The Frog and Bucket Manchester, Ruth has since performed all over the UK and Europe. She has performed at the Comedy Store London, written for TV and Radio, has been seen on Sky TV and heard on BBC Radio 4.

Her latest book of comedy poetry and stories, Miss Nobodies has recently been taken by The British Library and she is currently on tour as one half of satirical rock duo, Black Liver in Support Your Local Library! A Gothic/Pub Rock Opera.
