About the Workshop
This is an exclusive workshop for just 15 participants.
Kate has been teaching stand-up comedy, improvisation, comedy games, and joke-writing for nearly a decade.
She does not teach one single style of comedy and enjoys encouraging her students to experiment and find their own voice.
Kate aims to create a relaxed environment in which her students feel comfortable trying new things and refining their material.
