Stand-up comedian Anthony Lamond is hosting a stand-up comedy workshop on Saturday, April 10 that will see locals learn how to perform a routine then present it later that night.

MAREEBA locals have the chance to see some fresh-faced stand-up comedy with a comedy workshop and performance being held this Saturday, April 10. 

Locals are being invited to come along and see some familiar faces in some not so familiar lighting as their friends, family and neighbours try their hands at comedy. 

The workshop is being held during the day by standup comedian Anthony Lamond all culminating in a performance later that night.

Workshop participants can expect to learn how to put routines together and find what really makes them funny. 

Mr Lamond has been working in comedy for over 10 years and put together these workshops targeting rural areas.

After being approached several times after shows with people asking him how to get into standup comedy, Mr Lamond decided to take matters into his own hands and start a workshop that does just that.

“A lot of people fear public speaking, they would rather get eaten by a shark than talk to an audience,” he said. 

“This workshop not only gives people stand-up comedy skills, but it also boosts their confidence in everyday life.

“A tremendous amount of self-development and growth comes out of this workshop and performance.” 

The night will also act as a tribute to Cole Wyatt who passed away last year and was loved member of the Mareeba Theatre Group. 

The workshop will be held at the Mareeba Theatre Group Hall on Constance Street during the day in preparation for the performance to start at 7pm. 

Tickets are $25 per person. For more information and to book call Ida Portella on 0439 545 433.
