Part of Brighton Dome Comedy Festival.

Learn & develop new skills, meet new people, build confidence and have a lot of fun.

These Comedy Workshops focus on a range of elements such as exploring different comedy styles including stand-up, improv and character comedy, developing writing skills, building confidence techniques, observing, questioning, and experimenting with ideas. Across the weeks we’ll look at how material is developed along with gaining an insight into marketing a show and behind the scenes roles. 

The workshops will be led by local comedian Tom Veryzer with special guest comedians joining us across the weeks including artist and comedian Victoria Melody and comedian Michael Akadiri.

Participants will also have the opportunity to perform at Brighton Dome Studio Theatre on Sun 27 Oct.
