Comedy Lab: Sketch

Autumn 2023
If you’re interested in collaborating, writing and performing sketch comedy, then this is the lab for you.

If you’re interested in collaborating, sketch writing and performance, then this is the course for you.
Our comedy lab Sketch group is perfect starting point for comedians who want to write and perform collaboratively. Over the 10 week programme you’ll have the chance to write your own sketches, perform in sketches written by others and create ideas with other comics.

The Comedy Lab Sketch group meets weekly on Saturdays (2.5 hours), with classes starting on 07 October until 09 December. On Saturday 09 Dec we’ll hold a public sharing, where you’ll be able to showcase what you’ve learned over the course in a safe environment, at our very own Soho Theatre. We ask that participants commit to attending all 10 weeks.
