Furness Academy Comedy Club


During the first spring half term, eight students and six adults were part of a Comedy Trust training course, provided by comedian Sam Avery. Over the course of six weeks, all involved learned how to present themselves on stage, how to be confident and speak clearly and importantly, how to be funny.

The training culminated in a Comedy Showcase day on February 17th, with the students performing for an invited audience of parents and teachers after school and the adults performing to a 200 strong crowd in the evening. Both events were huge successes. The comedy night was brilliant; everyone was crying with laughter and the amateur comedians did a brilliant job.

However, most importantly, the training and events raised over £500 for our Student Inspiration Fund.

For those interested, we are running the training course again in autumn. Please contact Amy Dempster (adempster@furnessacademy.co.uk) for further information
