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.

Led by Sikisa

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 4-minute set which you will perform at the end of term, in front of a live and supportive audience.


Applications for our spring term are now open – Apply here 

Deadline Midday April 4th 2023


The Comedy Lab Stand-Up group meets weekly on Saturdays, with a public sharing in the last session which will take place on a Monday evening, where you’ll be able to showcase what you’ve learned over the course in a safe environment, at our very own Soho Theatre.
