Mondays, 7-8pm

Term dates:
8 March - 5 April

Our workshops will provide a crash course into the mad world of stand up comedy; performing, writing, how to trick yourself into writing and finding your voice. We’ll look at and discuss some of the best stand ups in the world whilst developing your act together. Oh, and we’ll be having a laugh too! By the last session you will have 5 minutes of killer material ready to take to the clubs (once they open again!)

Spaces are limited so please make sure you book in advance!

Once booked, you will receive an Zoom invite via email each week, one hour before each session.

Age guidance: 18+
