Stand Up to Stand Out Comedy Workshop

Chase away the January blues with Comedy Genius, a celebration of comedy on screen, taking place in Preston, Lancashire from 8th to 26th January.

As part of this initiative, we are running Stand Up to Stand Out, our signature comedy workshop, facilitated by Lynne Parker, founder of Funny Women. The two-hour workshop takes place from 5.30pm and is followed by a screening of the film ‘9 to 5 ‘(1980) at 7.30pm.

Build confidence and pick-up some ‘tricks of the trade’ to help you develop your personal performance style and create material. Please note: may cause improved self confidence and enhanced communications skills.

Workshop £25 including screening of ‘9 to 5’

Workshop & all films £32.50

Comedy Genius is a celebration of comedy on screen, led by BFI, the Independent Cinema Office and BFI Film Audience network, supported by funds from the National Lottery.
