Workshops for you

Do you love comedy? Do you want to inject some comedy into your writing or do you want to perform comedy? Do you want to get over your creative blocks and get on with that project you've been meaning to write? Or, do you just want to take life by the balls and step out of your comfort zone?

If you said yes to any of the above get excited because we've got a special selection of workshops for you including writng comedy and creating comedy characters. I give you the tools to come up with ideas, enjoy the writing process, see a way forward with your creative projects, write comedy and jokes and have fun while you work.

All experience of comedy writing is welcome. You can come along and leave all your crap at the door. The workshops are a safe and supportive space for you to be yourself and be creative. You will be surrounded by like-minded creatives and go away aching from having hours of laughter.  You will also get to talk to me 1-2-1 about the comedy industry, writing and performing.

But, it's about more than just comedy - it's about walking away feeling amazing and confident about your creative work! And, you will.

Let me tell you a little bit about me and why i run the workshops


My passion is comedy. I love watching it, writing it, performing it, reading about it and encouraging others to get involved with it. I felt lost for many years and comedy is the one thing I know I should be doing with my life. It makes me so happy.

However, years ago I didn't even know comedy could be a career option for me. I was so shy and anxious. I wouldn't have even known where to start. I wouldn't have got this far down the line without doing a comedy workshop that changed my life. I took part in a Saturday afternoon workshop with Funny Women about 5 years ago and it changed my life. I was put on stage for the first time doing stand up after that workshop and everything started from there.

I have also taken part in other comedy workshops and found them so inspiring and so much fun!

If you're reading this and thinking you are too shy or anxious to take part - don't worry. I was once in your shoes and that's why I have designed the workshops to be a really safe and supportive space. I promise you that taking part in my workshops will make you surprise yourself and boost your confidence so you can get cracking on that creative project.

Are you ready to give it a go? See below for the current workshops available and details of signing up to the mailing list to be first to know about new dates added. You can also contact me through my online contact form in the menu to ask me questions.
