Training and coaching in humour and comedy

Many people would like to be able to be funny….
But many of those people think that this is beyond their power – not true!
Everyone can be funny when they learn how to do it – and activate their natural and very individual ability.

Gerry offers training in comedy and humour, helping you:

– develop confidence and creative self-expression
– be funny and entertaining

as 1-to-1 coaching for individuals

as a group training event for groups and organisations

One to one coaching

A video about coaching in public speaking with confidence and humour:

Individual coaching in comedy skills can help  you:

– incorporate humour skills into your repertoire, or into a particular speech or presentation
– develop your own confident and individual sense of humour
– incorporate humour into other activies, such as writing or musical performance
– become a stand-up comedian or improviser

.Sessions available in Brighton or London UK, or by Skype/Facetime.

Gerry has coached many thousands of individuals to confidence and success over a period of twenty years


“I did a 5 minute open mic comedy spot in Brighton, and WOW it went really well! I put most of this down to Gerry helping me through the journey of writing and performing – but most of all giving me belief in myself”.
– Jon Austin, Austinwebs creative website design

“I have had a number of one-to-one sessions with Gerry. His approach to comedy and public speaking is genuinely unique, and his experience is vast. There is something that I have learned from Gerry in every one of my talks and presentations. If you get the opportunity to use Gerry I would take it – you will be enriched by the experience”

“We cannot thank you enough, Gerry. The whole experience for the group and myself was just so positive, I was so impressed with their confidence and the great support you gave them, and that was feedback from the individuals themselves. Performing has given them a new belief in themselves which we haven’t seen. Thanks for all your input, the group and staff are so grateful, it was such a fantastic project and opportunity.”
