"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."

"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.
