Course testimonials:

  • Krishna said: The course methodology was very good. Rob is an excellent teacher. Enjoyed the class room sessions. Rob was very funny, interactive. Threw us a lot of examples and connecting it to theory. Wish there was part-2 or more advanced version of this class.

  • Paul said: This is the feedback I sent to Rob, I have enjoyed so much, your class. Thank you. Each class I left having enjoyed that time, not often you get to say that on a Tuesday night. It was fun and I learnt a lot, but it also gave me joy in spending time there and with you and the class. Thank you so much.

  • Peter said: Rob is a very experienced comic. Really knows his stuff when it comes to comedy and the approach he uses to teach it. Thoroughly recommend this course. Most enjoyable and a good laugh.
