A course for people already performing comedy (experience of 30+ gigs) but want to develop their skills further with industry advice and masterclasses.

Led by Elf Lyons

Our comedy lab plus is perfect for comedians who already have experience but are looking for the next step. If you have experience of 30 or more gigs, this lab can help you with polishing your material, honing your voice and offers practical advice from industry professionals. This is the perfect environment to continue to work on your comedic craft and collaborate with other up and coming acts.


Applications for Soho Theatre Labs are now closed for the January term and will re-open in March for our May term.


The Comedy Lab Plus group meets weekly on Saturdays, with a public sharing on the final session, where you’ll be able to showcase what you’ve learned over the course in a safe environment, at our very own Soho Theatre.
