My stand-up comedy debut at Dirty Dick’s in London – Christopher John Payne

My stand-up comedy debut at Dirty Dick’s in London

I recently attended a stand-up comedy workshop with Tim Dingle. It was great fun, and I learned a lot. Tim is the MC (Master of Ceremonies) at regular standup comedy nights at Dirty Dick’s pub opposite Liverpool Street Station in London.

This is me at Tim’s workshop, which was held at Dirty Dicks…


…and this is the outside of the pub…


After the workshop I did my comedy debut there in February 2014. My slot was 5 minutes, and I got some good laughs. There were about 50 people in the audience, and several friends.

A big thanks too to Chris Head for his brilliant support: I’ve just finished his 10-evening┬ástand-up course which has been great fun and very enlightening. I have no interest in being a standup comedian: I just want to be able to add more humour to my talks, workshops and┬ávideos.
