Best Newcomer Season
The finest up and coming comedy acts from Edinburgh and Melbourne wrapped up in Best Newcomer Season bow.
If you’re taking a show to the Edinburgh Festival, this course gives you the opportunity to develop and craft your show with other comedy and theatre professionals.
Are you taking your show to Edinburgh Fringe? There is no better place to showcase your work than the biggest arts festival in the world, but this can also be a bit daunting. If you’re taking work to the Fringe for the first time and you’re not sure where to start, our Edinburgh Lab programme can help guide you, in a warm and supportive environment. The course discusses press releases, coverage, reviews, accommodation, logistics and gives lots of creative input along the way. Participants also have the opportunity to share 3-4 minutes of material at the end of term, to a Soho Theatre audience.
You will also have masterclasses run by Edinburgh gurus. Previous guests include Bec Hill, Underbelly, Lornette Harley, Kitty Edgar, Alex Hardy, Kelly Fogarty, Jenny Kassner, Beth Vyse and Edinburgh Comedy Awards Winners Richard Gadd and Sam Simmons.
The Edinburgh lab is a 10 week course, dates for 2019 will be announced in the spring. The course cost is £125 and bursaries are available.
