Children’s workshop in comedy, lead by Laura Lawson of the School of Comedy. There is a clown in each of us. However old, however young, deep inside we all have our own funny. Shyness, lack of confidence, social inhibitions all tarnish our clowns. Except when you’re at school of comedy. Join us for a workshop of ridiculous nonsense and fun.

Say: what makes you laugh, however naughty!

Do: what makes you feel funny, however silly you may look.

Be: however you want. There are no rules.

Learn tricks of the comedy trade, feel brave, be bold, laugh till your belly aches. This promises to be the most unique, inspiring and hilarious hour of your life so far….
