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 Bostwick-Barnes

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.

The Comedy Lab Stand-Up group meets weekly on Saturdays (2.5 hours). Sessions will start on 29 January 2022 until 26 March 2022. On Saturday 02 April 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.
