Do you love making people laugh and want to find your unique comedy voice working with professional comedians?

Join our regular Core Comedians group! Explore different styles of comedy, create characters, write and rehearse a set/sketches and then have the opportunity to perform with young people and professional acts at our regular family friendly Bangers & Mash Comedy Club.

Our participants have also previously enjoyed Q&As with comedians such as Milton Jones and Sara Pascoe.
