LBS students to star in comedy showcase

A number of professional comedians will join 16 LBS students on the bill for a night of humorous entertainment at the Backyard Comedy Club in Bethnal Green on Monday 20 May.

Comedians including Bec Hill, Samantha Neville and Cerys Bradley will accompany a team of aspiring comics from the School.

The event has been spearheaded by MBA2020 student David Jones, who has been teaching debating to 500 students during the last year in his role with the Public Speaking and Debating Club. In doing so, David saw the potential benefits of stand-up comedy and launched an intensive course for aspiring comics at LBS. The first course intake – which performed a showcase night in February – was so successful that a second course was set up, which will culminate in this performance in the middle of May.

Come along and support your peers as they take their first steps into the challenging environment of stand-up comedy. You can register for tickets here, but don’t delay – they are selling fast!
