ANGEL COMEDY SCHOOL

In 2017 Angel Comedy will be running a comprehensive programme of affordable courses, alongside our Second City training, at our venue, the Bill Murray.

As well as courses in stand up, joke and sketch writing, comedy film making and podcasting, protest comedy, and long and short form improv, we’ll also be running special intensive courses with well known artists such as the Pajama Men, John Gordillo and many more more.

On Tuesdays at The Bill Murray, John Gordillo will be leading The Comedians Studio, a collaborative workshop where comedians work together to hone their writing and performance skills.
