Newcastle’s Live Theatre is to relaunch its standup comedy course next week.

Professional comics John Scott and Paul Sneddon will host the workshops, which run for six weeks beginning on Tuesday 19 Apr at 7pm.

Tutors Scott and Sneddon, alongside special guests, will guide students through creating an on-stage character, using improvisation and stagecraft.

Students will then shape their material into a routine culminating in a special gig to try out their material in front of an audience at Live Theatre. The final show will take place on Tuesday 24 May at 8pm.

Past course participants include Micky Cochrane and Katherine Tanney – both now regular performers at The Stand Comedy Club.
