with Jane Postlethwaite
Do people tell you that you’re funny? Have you always wanted to try writing comedy? Maybe you’ve got some great ideas, a phone full of notes, a head full of swirling unfinished jokes, but you’re wondering what’s next?
If the answer to any of those is yes, then join Jane Postlethwaite, comedian, writer and proprietor of the Cumbria School of Comedy who’ll help you take those half-formed, unfinished funny moments in your head and transform them into real-life comedy writing. You don’t need any experience – all you need is an interest in comedy, writing and being creative.
So, banish thoughts of not being good enough, or thinking you don’t know what you’re doing and spend three hours building your confidence and having a laugh with like-minded women who want to make the world a funnier place.
Jane Postlethwaite is a Cumbrian comedian, writer, actor and voice over. Inspired by northern humour, dark themes, feminism and interesting characters she has created multimedia, audience interactive, thought-provoking and comedic work to make you laugh, cry laughing and think about what you cried laughing at for days after. In July 2018 Jane was selected for the BBC New Comedy award heats. She plays several characters in ‘Don’t Worry; It’s Only the End of the World’ a post-apocalyptic radio sitcom written by Alfie Shaw available on iTunes.
