Stand-Up Comedy for Beginners and the Terrified:


Gavin Baskerville is back with another of his popular stand-up comedy workshops
- this time it's an introductory session in HOBART for 14-17 year olds.

This workshop is great for anyone thinking of entering the Class Clowns comedy competition - or even if you're just curious about stand-up comedy and would like to find out more and maybe give it a go.

Saturday 16 February 2019
10.00am – 2.00pm

The Polish Corner
(home of Jokers Comedy Club)
Cnr Main Rd & Augusta Rd, New Town

Registration fee: $45


As a professional comedian and co-producer of Hobart’s Jokers Comedy Club, Gavin Baskerville has been teaching stand-up comedy for more than a decade, to Adult Education course participants, high school students, corporate groups and a wide range of other people who are keen to learn more about 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 and learning from a professional comedian with extensive festival, corporate and club performing experience.

Registration fee includes:

  • Workshop session 10.00am - 2.00pm.
  • Course notes (printed handouts).
  • Light morning tea refreshments provided (BYO extra snacks if you like).
