Comedy Lab: Stand-up

Autumn 2024
If you’re thinking about trying stand-up for the first time, our Comedy Lab Stand Up course is for you. Get ready to set your inner comic free.

Our 10-week Stand-up Comedy course will help you find your comedic voice and hone your writing and performance skills. You will be working with course leader and gigging comedian Sikisa, as well as other guest artists, to create your own 4-minute set which you will perform in front of a live and supportive audience at the end of term.


The Comedy Lab Stand Up group meet weekly on Saturdays, with a public sharing at the final session which will take place on a Monday evening at our Dean Street venue. We ask that participants commit to attending all 10 weeks.


Course structure
Sessions are every Saturday from 12.45-3.15pm.


Applications & Fees
£150 (Partial and full bursaries are available to those on Universal Credit and other welfare benefits. However, if cost is a barrier to participating,  contact us at and we can discuss payment options
