16/10/16- Workshop 1
Aberdeen Comedy Festival at ACT Aberdeen – 2pm (£11inc bf)
Ever fancied trying your hand at stand-up comedy? Aberdeen Comedy Festival is delighted to offer teens the chance to take part in a series of ‘Be a Comedian’ workshops. While all 3 workshops will cover similar topics (including areas such as writing original material, comedy structure, attitude and dealing with hecklers), we have a different comedian for each session, each one with their own individual style and ideas… so why not attend all 3!? Workshops will last approx. 2 hours and parents are not required to stay.
