Who We Are ?

The School of Hard Knock Knocks teaches budding comedians the hilarious trade of stand-up comedy. We do this with hands-on workshops, combining adult learning techniques, mentoring from veteran stand-up comedian, and loads of practice. We can’t make dull people funny, but we can make funny people hilarious.


Founded in November 2015 by Morry Morgan (left) and Ben Horowitz (right), this unlikely duo have brought together their individual 16 years of adult education and stand-up comedy, respectively, to build a stand-up comedy program that has students raving – just check out our student testimonials.


The stand-up comedy program includes public face-to-face courses, online programs, and in-house workshops for companies and organisations.

In 2018, the School of Hard Knock Knocks also produced 11 shows for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival (MICF), titled “The Best Of”, with five of the shows sold out.


The School of Hard Knock Knocks is also a proud supporter of Variety, the children’s charity.
