Why join Warwick Comedy Society?
Meet with like-minded people to discuss anything and everything about comedy. Whether you are just vaguely interested in stand-up, have strong views about the role of comedy in modern society or want a good argument about which comedians are truly funny, we offer socials at least fortnightly. Also if you do stand-up, plan to try it or are terrified and want some encouragement to pursue it, this is the place to come to meet people who know about it and share ideas. We'll run regular excursions to beer-fuelled comedy nights in Leamington Spa to watch great new comedy, meet up-and-coming comedians and generally have a great time!
We try to get hold of free or discounted tickets to really great comedy events, often in Warwick Arts Centre, but only for our members!
Members-only free DVD library
We have a huge selection of the best comedy DVDs (Including Black Books, QI and Flight of the Conchords) for you to rent for a fortnight at a time. If you’re a Comedy Society member you can rent up to two DVDs at a time for free!
As well as regular trips to local comedy nights in Coventry and Leamington, we will arrange bigger trips to see stand-up in Birmingham or elsewhere as often as we can. If you have an interest in reviewing comedy gigs or writing about comedy generally, our website can cater for you, offering you the platform to publish your work online.
Try stand-up comedy
If you are at all interested in one day trying stand-up, even if you think it's never gonna happen, joining the Comedy Society is the best way to get your dream a little closer to coming true. We have an aim to support student comedy performance in every way we can so you will always get opportunities to get on stage. We can help you start out in front of an audience at a gig in Leamington Spa, or at a student only venue. We get our members together to develop and write new material on a regular basis and run workshops every week to hone their skills. This is all to promote the comedic talent we have here at Warwick to a degree where we perform as a society more regularly.
Join our sketch group
The Comedy Society is the home of the Warwick Players, the university's foremost sketch group. If you fancy writing or performing in some sketches then come along on Friday evening to our weekly workshops where we write, rehearse and discuss ideas. We put on live shows every term and we also write and perform for our student radio station and YouTube, so there are loads of ways to get involved.
