Workshop: Intro to Stand-Up Comedy

2:30pm – 5:00pm
¥3,500 (on the door)

Enjoy watching stand-up and fancy giving it a go? Been to a few gigs and think you would enjoy it… but a little too nervous? Well Stand-Up Tokyo is offering a 3.5-hour workshop to help kickstart your comedy career! Under the guidance of regular Stand-Up Tokyo MC BJ Fox (NHK “Home Sweet Tokyo”, Okomedyaki), there will be exercises and games to help get you over the initial nerves and get you up on stage. Expect to write some material, get to know you classmates and then tell some jokes at the end.

The workshop will be held in Titans Craft Beer Taproom where they host their regular weekly open mic nights. Knowing how nerve-wracking performing can be, the team really want to help you get over that, so they can continue to add new voices to the growing stand-up comedy scene here in Tokyo.

The workshop will be primarily conducted in English, but Japanese participants who want to give comedy in English a go are welcome. BJ speaks decent Japanese, but in order for the workshop to run smoothly, a level of English will be required.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
