Dear Customer/Supporter of The Comedy School

The Comedy School is taking a range of measures to keep everyone safe and we have followed government guidance to make sure all of our classes are covid-secure, while also working hard to make sure socially-distanced comedy is still fun, friendly and playful! We also offer full flexibility on bookings to give you peace of mind when planning ahead. Please book early to avoid disappointment as class sizes have been reduced.
