Face to Face Performance Coaching

Tony offers invaluable and inspiring coaching for comedians, presenters, musicians - anyone who wants to use humour to communicate. Everyone’s different, so, rather than impose a set structure on these sessions, I’ll discuss in advance with you what you want and how many sessions you need.

Typically, a session will include your vocal delivery, your physical presence, your audience and how to relate to them, and your material. You will be given notes on writing jokes. After your comedy workshop, you’ll come out energised, inspired and ready to go live.


Performance Coaching by Video

If travelling is difficult, we could set up an invaluable session by skype, video or email. You can send a video of your performance, or your script, and get thorough feedback. You’ll be emailed a written comment summary and handouts.

One to One Session


  • Iain Dawson
  • Dr Mike Smith

The chat we had really helped. I've already got some new gags using your techniques, which is brilliant!

Iain Dawson (Viv the Spiv)

Prior to appearing as 1940s character Viv the Spiv before an audience of 10,000 in Battersea Park for the Jubilee Celebrations in June 2012, Iain had a preparatory session with me.

I brought the house down at the conference, thanks to your tutoring and guidelines

Dr Mike Smith

Mike did a standup comedy workshop with me in which he created a character persona as part of presentation at a major Medical Conference.
