Enjoy watching stand-up comedy 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-hr workshop to help kickstart your comedy career. Under the guidance of regular Stand-Up Tokyo MC BJ Fox (NHK “Home Sweet Tokyo”, Okomedyaki), the workshop will offer some 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 your classmates and then tell some jokes at the end.
The workshop will be held in Titans Craft Beer Taproom where the regular weekly open mic also takes place. Performing can be very nerve-wracking, and this workshop may help you get over. It’s also a chance to add new voices to the growing stand-up comedy.
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.
The event has a strict 10 person limit; all tickets are presale.
