If you’re considering stepping into the spotlight for the first time as a stand-up, you’ll need our Comedy Lab Stand Up course.

Are you 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 established comedians, some of which you may have seen already on our stages. The goal of the course is to create your own 3.5 minute set which you will perform, at the end of term, in front of a live and supportive audience.
The Comedy Lab Stand-Up group meets weekly on Saturdays 3:30pm – 6:00pm (2.5 hours). Led by Gemma Leader, classes will start on 18 Jan until 14 Mar. On Sat 21 Mar 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. Term 2 dates:

Week 1- 18 Jan
Week 2- 25 Jan
Week 3- 1 Feb
Week 4- 8 Feb
Week 5- 15 Feb
Week 6- 22 Feb
