Joe Wilkinson is one of my favourite comedians of all time - and one of the most recognisable faces in British comedy.

His recent credits include Sex Education, The Cockfields, Ricky Gervais' Derek and his unforgettable portrayal of Pat in After Life.

He's also a regular face on shows like 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week.

In this 2 HOUR mastermind, we dive deep into Joe's career, discuss EXACTLY what it takes to succeed at making people laugh, find out what it's REALLY like to work with Ricky Gervais - and members of Act On This jump on camera for some 1-2-1 coaching too!

During the broadcast, we discuss:

  • Joe's entry into the world of stand-up - and why he decided to get on stage at 30 years old.
  • The importance of committing 100% to every performance.
  • Meeting fellow comedian Diane Morgan and forming a comedy partnership.
  • Finding a path you like and not trying to please everyone.
  • What to do when you're feeling invisible.
  • Getting your comedy scripts in front of the right people.
  • Joe's first comedy commission for Sky One.
  • The video Joe posted online, which caught the eye of Ricky Gervais.
  • Working with Ricky on 'After Life'.
  • Scripted comedy versus improvisation.
  • Whether stand-up is a great way into comedy acting?
  • The mechanics of a great joke.
  • Working in comedy as an introvert.
  • Why there is no substitute for hard work.
  • The ONE thing Joe wants EVERY actor to know.
  • And MUCH MUCH more!
