At Holiday Comedy Club, they use comedy as a way of getting creative, playing, and learning about ourselves as well as performance techniques.
Available for young people aged 6-12 their groups will take part in a drama style workshop where they focus on the funny, whilst creating comedy characters and sketches rather than stand-up comedy.
They use improvisation games and exercises to focus on being in the moment, building resilience and increasing the confidence of their students all through a comedic lens and storytelling.
They encourage children to express themselves and share their observations of the world in a safe and fun environment.
Their sessions are filled with fun games and comedy drama techniques where they learn, develop, and show our work back to one another: therefore team work is a big part of what they do.
Every day at their Holiday Comedy Club we cover different content so your children can attend any number of days.
Big Comedy Shop runs Improvisation Comedy After School Clubs in several primary schools in Manchester. They also deliver bespoke comedy issue-based workshops in primary and high schools as well as our run Holiday Comedy Club days.
