Supported by the Fosters Funny website, the stand-up gave a short talk to his "students" before helping them construct a two-minute set via one-on-one tuition.
Kane quipped to DS: "It's possibly one of the most exciting things I've done this month, and I've done some pretty cracking things this month!
"It's just f**king brilliant for me, because I spend the whole time on stage doing this stuff with journalists trying their best to assess and grade what I've done from a place of knowledge but not experience, but today's the other way around."
Asked if comedy can be taught or is innate, Kane replied: "It's obviously a massive help if you have innate funny bones - someone like Lee Mack I would say has just got funny bones - as soon as he walks on the stage you're laughing.
"It's probably the case that 90% of the time, people who add sheer effort, determination and dogged persistence to innate talent are going to be the ones who make it - and I do realise I'm ejaculating [US writer Malcolm] Gladwell at the moment."
He added: "However, there has been and always will be examples [French writer Gustave] Flaubert, [Victorian novelist] Anthony Trollope, of people that think 'F**k that, so what I wasn't bright at school, I've never shown no potential, I will now f**k you all up by working my t*ts off till I eventually die of an aneurysm... I will just use effort to rise to the top'. It can be done!
"If I took up weightlifting today I'm only going to go so far - even in my weight category - because I'm not a big bloke, I don't even have pecs!
"But I reckon if I got on the steroids, worked out every day, I could probably become quite respectable at it in two years - and maybe even fluke a minor title."
