✨ Who is Jane?✨

I'm a multi-comedy award finalist who has had sell out runs of my one woman shows at Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals over the last five years. My shows have appeared at Brighton Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe and the Women in Comedy Festival. I've also been heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Cumbria and BBC Radio Extra.

I ran a successful comedy night in Brighton for three years and produce a couple of comedy podcasts. I have done full one woman comedy character shows and I do straight stand up. I also do voice acting for radio plays and voice over.

I also have over 15 years of experience working in marketing and social media which will help you promote your show and yourself as a brand.

During the workshop you will be able to ask me any questions about the industry and have some 1-2-1 time to talk about any creative projects or get some advice for your own career. I share all my experience and secrets about the comedy industry - (Most of which I wish I'd been told when i started out.)

I've taught hundreds of people across the UK and internationally to help them get on their comedy path. My workshop students have gone on to do stand up, win comedy competitions, write one woman shows, write children's books and write scripts / sketches.
