Comedy Workshop for Community Development


This is essentially a jump-start introduction to stand-up comedy.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have their own introductory 5-minutes
long comedy set.
The workshop consists of one preliminary meeting (any group size) where the basics

of the art form are presented, and the overall plan is introduced. A couple of joke-
writing and warm-up exercises can be added to make the session more engaging.

Afterwards, a smaller group (recommended minimum 6 people, max 12) will meet 3-4
times in dedicated workshops to brainstorm, write, workshop and rehearse their
comedy materials.
The activity ends with a 2-hours final performance in front of a larger group, or the
local community where possible.
