Been looking for a comedy class in Tokyo? Look no further!

Tokyo has never had a comedy class before! So we thought it was time to make a change to that.

As part of the Magners International Comedy Festival, we’re lucky enough to have international touring pro comedian Steven Briggs passing through to judge the Tokyo finals of the Asian Comedy Competition. So, we thought we’d take advantage of this opportunity. A comedy class with a real, hard-working road dog in town and get him to share some of his secrets with Tokyo comedians and anybody interested in what it’s like being a full-time performer.

This comedy class will give you a real lesson in stand-up, but a lot of the skills are applicable to other arts, or just to daily life. It’s all in English, and you can also find information from us about how to start doing open mic comedy in Tokyo. This could be the start of something big for you! Don’t miss this unique chance.

What will be covered?
– What to talk about
– How to break writer’s block
– Different styles of comedy
– Expanding the joke
– Dirty vs working clean
– Playing to your strengths
– Crowd work
– Getting a tape to submit
– Festivals
– Bookings
– Why business is as important as funny
– Marketing
– Invest in yourself
– Subconscious writing
– How to make money from stand up
– Comedy goals
– How to deal with hecklers


None other than Titans Craft Beer Bar in Otsuka! As well as taking in all the comedy tips, you’ll also get to drink amazing craft beer and eat Todd’s famous Tuesday Tacos! It’s the first time they’ve held a comedy class there but this venue can do it all and we love them.
