ComedySportz also runs short courses in Longform Improv, Musical Improv, Presentation Skills and Sketch Writing. We run these courses less often than our regular courses but we’ll post them here whenever we have dates booked in.

COVID-19 UPDATE: All face-to-face workshops are cancelled for the foreseeable future. We will continue to review the situation in line with current advice but safety will always be our main priority. We hope to reschedule workshops as soon as the situation allows. In the meantime we will continue to deliver some of our Drop-Ins digitally. Visit our Facebook page for regular updates.
