An afternoon course for all levels. Anna Morris has taken 6 successful comedy shows up to the Edinburgh Festival as a theatre company, double act and solo artist. She’s self-produced and worked with promoters, and has learnt from her mistakes! She’s taken her solo shows to the Glasgow and Leicester Comedy Festivals and performed them all over the UK. Anna has experience in comedy plays, sketch shows and solo character comedy shows. She’s been praised for neat structures, innovative staging, audience interaction and unique themes. If you’re taking up a show and are stuck on approaches, Anna offers practical solutions on problem solving various Edinburgh obstacles, and gives honest advice on how much PR, marketing etc you really need.

She’ll cover:
– Show ideas: approaching, writing and creating a full length show: generating material, direction, rehearsals, themes, narrative etc
– Gigs, work in progress shows and previews
– Working around Edinburgh venues (adapting a show to suit the most minimal of spaces)
– Titles, taglines, blurbs
– Show images: photos, flyers, posters
– Structure, engaging an audience, costume changes and ‘between’ sketches
– Marketing, press, PR
– Budgets and areas to spend and not to spend on
– Admin: deadlines and things to remember. Recommended suppliers and venues.

Taught by: Anna Morris (Anna Morris is a multi-talented actress, comedian and writer. She has written for the Paul O’Grady Show, appeared in Outnumbered (BBC1) and Bad Bridesmaids (ITV3) and created and starred in the viral hit Georgina’s Wedding Blogs www.annamorris.co.uk)

Two of London’s best comedians present their Edinburgh shows!

LOU SANDERS IN ANOTHER GREAT SHOW AGAIN
Catch this show before it goes to Soho Theatre! A genderless riot from a little old force-to-be-reckoned-with. Sanders goes hard-pedal, without too much of a fuss. Forty five jokes, six props, one hero and I dare say a bit of heartbreaking (you), groundbreaking (her). Sanders, generally: absolutely: ultimately: nails-it. Sleeze: turned down. Clothed: fully.
As (not) seen on Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience & Russell Howard’s Good News and Tinder.

‘Destined for hugeness’ Time Out 

‘Crazy off-beat surrealism, it seems something new is happening in comedy’ The Independent

‘This an hour of non-stop entertainment with seriously big laughs, wild and free and very, very funny.’ Chortle

DON’T WORRY GUYS IT’S SARAH CAMPBELL
Have you been mis-sold PPI? Me neither. Feel a bit left out tbh. My friend got seven grand! ANYWAY: mind-blowing stand-up about nagging anxieties from the Radio 4 and Russell Howard’s Good News writer. Featured on Radio 4’s Fresh From The Fringe and ITV2’s Bad Bridesmaid.
