Comedian Brian Two is attempting to teach people in Milton Keynes how to do standup comedy.
Its thought to be one of the most terrifying things to do on stage but the classes have been hugely popular
I went to see Brian and see if he could teach me how to do accents
Brian Two has been a stand up since 1997 and is now writing comedy scripts.
Heart asked Brian if you can teach someone to be funny:
"I’ll let you know in 6 weeks... no I'm sure you can, i think it can be done, some people are naturally funny, some have naturally funny bones, other people you have to tease it out a bit more, some people don't realise they're funny and they actually are so its just a matter of finding those things about them that are funny and bringing them out"
Brian told Heart, most classes in standup comedy are in London so this will give people living in the Milton Keynes area a place to learn closer to home.
The classes are six weeks long and at the end of it you get to go on stage and do a comedy set in front of an audience.
More about the classes can be found on Brian's website
