Bi-weekly – Week 1 – Thursday – 12pm – 2pm

Term 1 – via Zoom; Term 2 – Tartu (tbc)     Space available

In this fun-filled workshop, we will explore the various genres of comedy including Stand-Up, Sketch, Improv, Satire and Slapstick and the many contexts in which comedy is delivered such as Sitcom, Late Night, SNL, movies, plays, literature, cartoons and more! 

Learn what makes us laugh and share what makes you laugh.  Find out the secret of comedy writing in all its forms.  If ‘laughter is the best medicine’, then it’s more urgent now than ever to find your funny bone!  Enjoy the humour as participants share their favourite examples of comedy in the workshops.  Participants may even try their hand at writing and presenting their own comedy in front of the class at the end of term, but only if they wish, no pressure whatsoever!
