Professional comedian Gavin Baskerville has been teaching stand-up comedy for almost a decade, to Adult Education course participants, students, corporate groups and a wide range of other people who are keen to learn more about the 'finer art' of stand-up comedy.

After almost twenty years as a comedy performer, writer and producer in the Australian comedy industry, including several years performing onboard cruise ships, Gavin has seen it all – the good, the bad and the ugly – and now you can benefit from his experience and expertise in a workshop setting. The workshop program explores everything from writing jokes and creating routines to performance techniques and effective stagecraft, and the course is designed to inspire, motivate and challenge you.

Workshop highlights will include learning to write your own jokes, learning about how comedians 'do what they do', turning your life experiences into comedy routines, learning from a professional comedian with extensive festival, corporate and club performing experience, and kick-starting your own comedy career.

Registration fee includes:

  • Saturday session 10am-4pm and Sunday session 10am-4pm.
  • Course notes (printed handouts).
  • Free entry to Jokers Comedy Club on 20+27 June and 4+11+18 July.
  • Teas/coffee/biscuits provided for morning and afternoon breaks (note: lunchbreak is 30 mins - bring-your-own or buy-your-own).
  • Reduced one-on-one comedy coaching rate if you want to continue working with Gavin after you’ve completed the workshop.
  • Maximum group size of twelve participants.

The workshop venue:
