For most people, public speaking is one of their biggest fears and the thought of standing up in front of a room full of people attempting to make them laugh is enough to make them break out in a cold sweat.

We are therefore proud to offer LBS's first ever comedy school; where we will invite some of London's best stand-up comics to come in a deliver a course on how to perform stand up comedy.
The sessions will cover
  • Overcoming stage fright
  • Joke writing
  • Crowd control and feeling confident
To finish we have booked the London Comedy Club where you will each be given a chance to perform a 5 minute set in front of a friendly and welcoming crowd of LBS'ers.
