Coming up at the Wellington Comedy Club (every Thursday at San Francisco Bathhouse is The Rookie Competition - which if you've always wanted to give comedy a go is the ideal opportunity. The competition will be on Thursday 19 October, from 8pm.
In advance of this, we're holding a free comedy workshop at the Bathhouse at 6.30pm this Thursday 12 October. This is not a comedy writing workshop, but is instead an introduction to the business of comedy - including technical aspects of performance and an overview of what venues and promoters expect of a "professional" comedian.
The workshop should be about an hour long, and tutors will be prominent Wellington comic Steve Wrigley, this year's Billy T winner Cori Gonzales-Macuer and myself (I'm the Vice President of the NZ Comedy Guild). Highly recommended if you're intending to enter the rookie competition (you can sign up at the workshop), or if you're interested in comedy in general.
If you'd like to come to the workshop, please RSVP by sending me an email (use the address in the right hand column). If you'd like to enter the rookie competition, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
