As a professional comedian and co-producer of Hobart’s Jokers Comedy Club, Gavin Baskerville has been teaching stand-up comedy for over 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 more than 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.

  • Workshop sessions 10.00am - 4.00pm on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 March.
  • Course notes (printed handouts).
  • Light morning and afternoon tea refreshments (lunchbreak is 30 mins - bring-your-own or buy-your-own).
