Comedy Society (ComedySoc)
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 four free workshops per week for people to develop their skills in sketch acting, 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 2019 marking the seventh year in a row in which we have taken two shows, The Shambles (our in-house improv troupe) and a show from our resident touring sketch troupe, The Dead Ducks.
