Saturday 18th November | 11:00 – 17:00

Unfortunately, this workshop has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We have gotten in touch with all ticket holders, and we apologise for any disappointment caused.

Stuck for clever things to say on stage? More importantly, do you think fart jokes are funny? We’ll explore performance that is unashamedly silly; celebrating moments where everyone is laughing, even if no-one knows why.

Drawing on traditions of clowning, we’ll emphasise the power of simple gestures, responsiveness to your scene partner and developing scenes intuitively. This course will focus on making sure that everyone is having fun and being generous on stage, while creative ideas flow. 

We’ll cover:

Getting stupid: Becoming fearlessly silly to free up creativity. 

Nonverbal: Learn to communicate & perform intuitively with your face and body and learn not to rely on words.  

Finding your funny: What makes you tickle? Learn how to lean into your unique type of funny. 

Working Together: Focusing on being generous and collaborative while performing.

Please note, this course is recommended for improvisers with some performing experience and is not suitable for beginners. We’d recommend that you have taken at least one of our Performing Improv Level 1 courses, or equivalent, before signing up to this course.

About the Instructor

Britt is a comedian and performer who has been improvising for nine years. She performs with The Descendants, Taco Cat and Juice Improv. She’s an experienced improv teacher, having taught for the biggest improv company in the UK, Hoopla Impro.


Britt is a brilliant teacher: knowledgeable, hilarious, confident without being overzealous, and a strong leader. I also enjoyed all the games and meeting beaut people. Britt is so lovely and inclusive.

One of the most enjoyable improv classes I’ve ever done. Britt creates a fun and gentle atmosphere which is the best environment for playing and enjoying improv
