Kids Comedy Workshop at Manchester Literature Festival

We’re delighted to once again be delivering a kids comedy workshop for the Manchester Literature Festival in October! The workshop is a fun introduction to comedy writing and improvisational skills suitable for kids aged 8-11 years.

Kate and Sean will once again be facilitating the workshop at Z Arts in Hulme. They will show kids how to write and perform comedy, using improvisation as a writing tool, and finding comic inspiration from their lives and imaginations.

To avoid cramping your children’s style, we ask parents not to stay in for the workshop. There is a nice café outside the room for adults that want to be close by.  For the last 15 minutes of the workshop, adults will be invited in to watch a mini performance, so the young comics can show what they have been working on.

As this is the Manchester Literature Festival we’ll also have our book available to purchase as well as lots of other lovely bits of merchandise! Our ComedySportz book includes a short introduction to core improv skills as well as some of our favourite games that you can play with friends and family at home. The book is also available to purchase at all ComedySportz shows!

This kids comedy workshop is a ticketed event. Tickets can be purchased here.

Why not make a day of it with the fantastic comic art masterclass with Kev Sutherland (the hands behind hit show Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre) beforehand? Tickets can be purchased here.

And if you think you might get jealous of all the fun the kids are having there are still spaces available on our Foundation in Improv course for adults starting 6th October.
