Ever struggled with confidence? Been held back by fear of failure? Well comedians Alexandra Haddow and Jamie Allerton have, so they started doing stand up just so that people would call them brave all the time.
If you can get up in front of a room full of people you don't know and try to make them laugh, you can pretty much do anything, (aside from life saving surgery or making the perfect poached egg at home. Nobody has ever done that.)
As part of 'digital writers shed' Scrivener's event series, helping students to keep everything together in exam and dissertation time, join Alex and Jamie for this event that's part confidence builder, part interactive workshop, and pretty cheap therapy for everyone involved.
If you've ever wanted to feel better about yourself, Alex and Jamie can tell you a story about their failures that will do just that. Whether you want to learn how to be better at public speaking, conduct yourself in a more confident manner, or just learn how to deal with it when something doesn't work out, we can help you.
Plus, you get to come to our gig straight after and see if we're any good or not, who knows, you might even want to try it yourself?
