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'...

    Julia
  • "It helped me gain skills that are useful on stage but also in my everyday life. And Ben is awesome!"

    Raffaella
  • "I think it's great that the students get to watch the Crea shows for free, get involved in Powerball and perform a graduation show. I am now hooked on improv. The only downside is that "normal" life seems a bit dull!"

    Anonymous
  • "The post-show high is better than sex, drugs and more contemporary than rock and roll. And I have tried all three at least once."

    Jim
  • "Luke, you are a great and inspiring teacher! I love how you capture the essence of every scene and reflect on it, especially by playing it out in other ways to make your point. Thanks a lot!"

    Florian
  • "I already signed up to level 2 is because I liked it... so keep up the good job!"

    Pepe
  • "A fun and spontaneous world has opened up for me which I'm deeply grateful for, and I am looking forward to continue this fine art and sport!"

    Hille
  • "It was fun, varied and always interesting. It was challenging without being intimidating and I felt that each week we were all getting better."

  • "Peter holds a great amount of knowledge about this subject I believe and he could always bring up some brilliant example or way to deal with the situation to improve us / make us have more fun. So only good things to mention about him."
