COVID-19 Update: All performances have been suspended until further notice.  Online sketch comedy writing courses are running. In-person improv and sketch workshops (in-session and upcoming) will be postponed on a rolling basis until we're able to offer them again. Feel free to book into any listed workshops that you're keen for – we'll keep pushing them back until we're able to hold them, and people with registrations on the books will get first crack at participating. It might take awhile, but we'll eventually be back to normal and would love to have you involved for a much-needed laugh.
