Learn how to be a standup comedian with professionals from Kids Comedy Club and have your friends and family in hysterics!

10 am: Today you will meet hilarious comedians from Kids’ Comedy Club. Sit back, relax and laugh along with some hilarious jokes, and even give them feedback as to which jokes were the funniest and which bombed!

They will then teach like how to use the microphone and how to stand – as well as games and tasks to learn to write and perform comedy, finding the funny in life and real experiences, and turning this into confidently-delivered stand-up and sketches.

At the end of the session, our Discover participants will interview the comedians on their life and work, and what it’s like to have an actual job as a funnyman.

12.30 pm: Lunch and free time! Eat outside in the sun, explore the Museum with our guides, play some games or enjoy some quiet independent reading time.

1.30 pm: Using the ideas from your morning’s session, our Learning session team will help you work on developing your stand-up routine further, and create a presentation. As well as plenty more games, of course!
