Hurray! Our new website is now live! The old one was getting a bit rusty, so we’ve had a spring clean, and can now show off the new site, which is full of social networking cleverness, as well as the dates and places of all our shows and workshops.

As we head into our 8th year of teaching, from July 20th our ComedySportz UK Workshops in Stand Up, Improvisation and Sketch Writing will be moving to The Black Lion Pub, Salford.

We are no stranger to this venue having performed Let’s See What Happens here in the past, and with Bron, Carly and Rob all being involved with previous One Play One Day performances based there… we even held our Xmas party in 2011 there!
