An 8-week class with easylaughs is a physical, mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual workout.
  • push yourself out of your comfort zone
  • surprise yourself, at least twice, by what you're capable of
  • hone your presentation skills
  • feel embarassed and self-conscious, then get over it
  • begin to notice your patterns, triggers and default responses
  • improve your posture
  • improve your voice
  • align your voice with your posture
  • perform live in front of a real audience on the easylaughs main stage
  • feel pretty cool that you did it
And yes, you'll have fun too :)
PLUS all students get free entry to all easylaughs shows while their class is running - so that's your Fridays sorted as well!
Most students who take a level 1 class go on to sign up for level 2. Just sayin'...
