Comedy Society (ComedySoc)

  • Groupsicon

Description

We hold a weekly show (Wednesdays, 8pm, V/045) that has been prepared by members of the society, ranging from improvised comedy and sketches to stand-up and panel shows. These shows have a discounted entry fee for paid members.

We hold three free workshops per week for people to develop their skills in improv, writing and stand-up comedy. These can be attended by anyone.

We aim to take shows to the Edinburgh Fringe festival each year, with 2016 marking the fourth year in a row in which we have taken two shows, The Shambles (our in-house improv troupe) and a sketch show, Present and Correct.
