DoES DoES Standup Comedy Training

As a last hoorah for our outgoing Boost member Kirsty Styles, and a first hoorah for six (un)willing DoES members and friends, our volunteers have been invited to do a 10-minute comedy performance about… anything they bloody well like at DoES DoES Standup on Wednesday 12 October 2022.

Made something? Done something? Found something? Know something? All thoughts and feelings welcome!

There’s an opportunity to work on your material and have a practice on Wednesday 14 September with a pro from Bright Club Manchester and there’s also a **bonus opportunity** to perform at Bright Club Manchester on Tuesday 11 October, which is the day before our gig. Call it a final practice or tell yourself you’re on the comedy circuit.

Register your interest in performing using this form: https://forms.gle/Q2tNDaZ1SQCKMh3o6
Register to join the audience on Eventbrite: https://tinyurl.com/doesdoesstandup

Contact Kirsty at kestyles1@gmail.com to find out more
