Women’s Comedy Workshops
A comedy workshop tailored for you to learn new skills, step out of your comfort zone, have a really good laugh and get motivated for a creative project.
You don't need any experience of comedy writing - just have a interest in comedy, writing and being creative. Safe and supportive environment to learn. This is also a chance to network and meet new people with similar interests to you.
You will learn what makes something funny, how to mine your own life for comedy inspiration, try some improvisation, learn about story arcs and characters, get access to private facebook community so you can make new friends or network...and more!
