Online Stand-up Comedy Courses



If you’ve ever wanted to learn stand-up comedy, but don’t have the time to hit the late night open mic nights, or undertake a stand-up comedy course, then an online course might be for you. Here’s a comprehensive list of online stand-up comedy courses to choose from:

School of Hard Knock Knocks Online Course

Price: AU$199.95 | Learn more

If you don’t have time to do the School of Hard Knock Knocks face-to-face stand-up comedy course, then this online course comes a close second. Comedy students who do enrol in the offline course, actually get complimentary access to this online course as well, since it is a replica, excluding the night 5 graduation performance in front of a live audience. The online course is hosted by Aussie comedy great, Greg Fleet, and includes everything from understanding your comedy style, through to joke structure, idea creation, confidence building, volume, tone, speed and pauses, and handling hecklers. There’s also opportunities to get feedback from an online comedian.

Perhaps the best part of this course is upon graduation, you get the cost of the online course off the face-to-face course.


Price: AU$130 | Learn more

MasterClass is part course, part voyeuristic experience, as you watch other comedy students get coached by Steve Martin, while also completing tasks of your own. Obviously, the course is US-centric – after all Martin is Hollywood celebrity, but the lessons learnt are practical for us Aussies too.

The Rik Roberts School of Laughs

Price: AU$140 (Silver), AU$344 (Gold) and $547 (Diamond) | Learn more

We’ve interviewed American Rik Roberts on the School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast before, so it was only fair to review his online comedy course. Rik’s course is available on three tiers based on the level of feedback you wish to receive. All levels include over 3 hours of online tutorials, a ninety page companion workbook, quizzes and bonus web resources.
