The Hard Knock Knocks Comedy School is Australia's own stand-up comedy school, with stand-up comedy classes run across Australia, and our head quarters at The Rubber Chicken in Melbourne.

Founded in 2016, the Hard Knock Knocks Comedy School has been helping keynote speakers, bucket list tickers and budding comedians develop stand-up comedy skills. This is accomplished through monthly hands-on, evening workshops and our own online course, which combines adult learning techniques, mentoring from veteran stand-up comedians, and loads of practice. Our mentors have included Steve Hughes, Richard Stubbs, Matt Okine, Jeff Green, Chris Franklin, and Nikki Osborne, just to name a few.

Upon graduation, the school helps graduates continue their journey by producing the ‘The Best Of’ festival shows at festivals around Australia as well as booking graduates to perform in professional shows alongside Australia and the world's best. 

And in March, 2021 the Hard Knock Knocks Comedy School released the comedy-drama 'Is This Thing On?',  following 10 newbie comedians learning stand-up comedy with the help of some of Australia's funniest stand-up comedians, on Apple TV.
