The Comedy School is the only arts organisation of its kind in the UK which works with comedy in many different settings. We are a non profit organisation and rely heavily on volunteers and donations. We also welcome any specialist advice or work that can be given pro-bono.
David Ingram raised £4,118.75 towards our Knife crime project. David says: "I would highly recommend the stand up comedy course at The Comedy School. Taking part gave me the confidence and courage to go on stage and fulfil a long held ambition. Not just that; it also gave me the opportunity to meet some great people and raise funds for an incredibly worthy cause. A great experience all round."

Recently, due to government cut-backs, funding has been greatly reduced for our "It's No Joke!" production which tours schools around the UK using comedy as a tool to address the issues of anti-social behaviour and weapons related crime - particularly knife crimes.
We would especially welcome donations at this time to ensure that "It's No Joke!" can continue. Please take a moment to look at the videos and the appreciative comments on the "It's No Joke!" page.
