Stand-up Comedy Weekend Workshop
Craft your own stand-up set on our intensive weekend workshop, then present it live on the Poodle Club stage before an audience.
This workshop is the perfect way to give stand-up a try in a supportive and fun weekend. Over two days of immersive classes with a highly experienced teacher, you'll learn the tools you need to get on stage and get that audience laughing.
Even if you don't fancy a career in the limelight, our comedy workshop will help anyone to gain confidence and have a laugh with other funny people. Classes run from 11am - 5pm with a lunch break, culminating in a live showcase on Sunday at 7pm. This class will be strictly limited to 12 students.
The workshop fee includes 2 tickets to Poodle Club (worth £22), which can be used for any weekend show to enjoy a night out yourself or use them as a gift.
