Secretly you fancy giving stand-up comedy a go, don't you?
You'd love to be on the bill at next year's comedy festival, wouldn't you?
Well, if you live in the west of the city, this may be the opportunity you've been looking for! De Montfort University's Mile2 project is offering free stand-up comedy courses run by real live comedians, to residents living in the Woodgate, Newfoundpool and Fosse/Tudor Road areas of the city. Not only that, but the course will culminate in a special one-off live show as part of Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival 2013!
15 lucky residents will get regular coaching from experienced comic Alan Seaman - founder of Ship of Fools comedy club, ably assisted by Leanne Mckie - stand-up and co-founder of regular open mic night Lions Eat Ice Cream. The classses start this Thursday (15th November) at Newfoundpool Neighbourhood Centre, so if you fancy giving comedy a go, don't sit around thinking about it, just sign up now - you have nothing to lose, and it could be your first step on the way to comedy stardom!
