No Direction Home: Standup Comedy
20th September 2018

An invitation to anyone from a refugee background interested in performing comedy

As part of their No Direction Home festival this autumn, Camden People’s Theatre in partnership with Counterpoints Arts will be running a series of one-on-one sessions, group workshops and writing exercises to prepare for a unique comedy show where YOU can perform.

If you love a laugh, think you might have something funny or interesting to say, or are just looking to grow in confidence by learning how to talk in front of a group – then why not give standup comedy a try?

Whether you are an aspiring comedian seeking to improve your material or an absolute beginner looking to tell jokes for the first time – all are welcome. We can prove that anyone can be a comedian! Yes, even you! Sign up, come along and find out…

Sessions will run throughout October towards a performance in early November. They will be led by professional comedian Tom Parry who has been nominated for (and even won) several awards and performed in comedy clubs up and down the country. He is a writer and director of comedy who has worked in television and theatres for over ten years.
