Celebrating 23 Years of The Comedy School



COVID-19 Update (26th August):

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.

This is still a challenging time for all of us. We have to continue to keep positive and all pull together to get through this.

Thank you for considering booking with The Comedy School any profits go towards our charitable projects.

Wishing you all the best. Stay healthy and take care of each other.

Keith Palmer MBE, Director of The Comedy School
