"Nik is a brilliant tutor. The course was good value, informative and very educational. Nik's friendly approach calmed any nerves we had, it was obvious he knows his stuff, he had the ability to anaylse our work very effectively. Nik is very experienced and kindly shared many anecdotes and experiences with the class. I've come away learning a few new processes and a good insight to the stand-up industry."
Raj Kukadia, London
"The comedy course with Nik was absolutely fantastic. In just 2 days I went from a quivering anxious on-stage mess to a confident new stand-up at the final showcase. Some people even laughed! Nik's course has given me the confidence to continue and perform at more shows.
I would thoroughly recommend Nik's course to anyone thinking about getting into stand-up comedy"
Lucy Amans, Estepona, Spain
“Amazing course. Had a lot of fun. I learnt some great tips about comedy that will help me far into the future. Nik’s energy is as electric as Jamie Foxx in Spider-Man.
You’d be a fool to not grab the opportunity to do this course. You’ll meet some awesome people, I mean what else can you ask for?”
Liam Wilcox, Brighton
Nik’s course was a really fun 2 days. I laughed from start to finish and met some great like minded people. I learnt so much about the comedy industry, gigs and the circuit.
The best thing was how generous Nik is with his input, experience and time. His advice and tutoring has taken me from an unsure total novice to confident amateur wanting more stage time in just one weekend. I have learnt so much about writing, editing, performing and what I can bring. Do yourself a favour; book in this course.

In conclusion, if you're looking to improve your public speaking, boost your confidence, or even just bring a bit more laughter into your life, Nik Coppin's stand-up comedy course is a worthwhile investment. The tangible benefits I've gained have helped me not only in comedy but in many more areas of life"

“For everyone going on this course, you’re going to have a great time. I really enjoyed it - met some great and funny people and to have the benefit of Nik’s experience is superb. Really well structured too; from being a bag of nerves, you soon relax because of the atmosphere created and have a brilliant time. It gave me the confidence then to go and carry on performing!”
Nick Tarlton, Benalmádena, Spain
“I had always wanted to try stand up comedy but never quite knew where to start. This course is the perfect way to get into it. Before the course I was a bag of nerves thinking I could never get on stage and put myself out there like that. A few days later I was performing in front of a crowd and loved it! Nik gives you all the tools you need, from writing jokes to then delivering them on stage, and some very handy and important do’s and don’ts. I’ve since performed a bunch of times and continue to improve based on notes I took from this course. Even if you’re a fan of comedy but don’t plan on taking it any further, this course gives you an insight into an interesting and captivating art form. You’ll also meet some interesting and like-minded people and have lots of fun along the way!”
