The School of Christmas Comedy

Sold out

Brought to you by the hilarious School of Comedy, this Christmas Cracker lunchtime comedy slam for all the family is one not to miss.

The club that has spawned Hollywood stars and countless brilliant actors, comes to the Bush this Christmas for one session of magical comedy fun.

The stage is yours for full clowning, collaborating and bumfoolery.  This masterclass of improvisation and entirely interactive session gives everyone a chance to grab the mic, tell a joke, a funny story, a ridiculous song, a naughty poem and make us hoot the house down.

The School of Comedy believes that performance skills can be nurtured through comedy. Come along with your laughing boots on.

“Once your child experiences this club they will never want to miss it! Laura’s energy and talent is infectious and this is reflected in all the children she teaches. I had no idea my own boys could learn to be so confident and funny. The end of term shows are hilariously entertaining. A real triumph!”
Lindsay Otten, Mum to Fabian Age 11
