THE BOOK: How To Be An Unstoppably Amazing Comedy Genius, by Isabelle Adam – £7 inc. P&P (if in the UK, £10 if in Europe/US etc)
Learn the secrets of stand-up comedy in this new guide from Comedy Club 4 Kids; get self-confidence for free!
This hyperbolically-titled 50-page booklet is a comprehensive guide for would-be comedians that takes the reader from the key imperatives of stand-up – be original, be funny, and trust yourself – through the material-generating process, turning those notes into comedy and how to sell it to a live crowd. It is illustrated with over 90 of Isabelle’s photos of the adult veterans of the Comedy Club 4 Kids live shows, from James Acaster to Zoe Lyons.
There are four sections to the booklet:
“This is a brilliant book full of great tips, hints and advice for anyone starting out in comedy… I imagine. I fell asleep while I was reading mine.” – Little Howard, the rude 6-year old animated stand-up
“A useful introduction to stand-up” – Steve Bennett, Chortle
Suitable for ages 8+. We reckon.
Younger kids might need someone reading it with them, to explain things if they seem a little complicated (and to act as joke test-grounds too).
We will also be selling copies at some of our UK gigs and workshops.
