If you've ever found that telling jokes comes naturally to you, or that you enjoy making people laugh, this is the society for you. It will be a platform to work on your stand-up in comfortable environments, and engage in social events with other comedy fans.
Covid-19 has seriously damaged the comedy scene throughout the country but particularly for amateur performers looking to try stand up for the first time. With staple open mic nights like the Stand's Red Raw not looking like it will take place anytime soon, we hope to run similar events within the university.
We want to help build the confidence of enterprising stand-ups and create a space for collaboration on all things comedy!
