What we’re all about
LUU Comedy Society is a group of like-minded students who love writing, performing and watching all kinds of comedy. Whether you want to join us as an experienced performer, an untested writer or as someone who just loves comedy, membership gives you discounted entry to comedy events around the city, as well as making you the first to find out about gigs, opportunities and keeping you in contact with like-minded comedians.
To better hone our comedy skills we hold workshops with established comedians and groups, where we learn and practice new techniques in a friendly and supportive environment -to be put into practice in our shows. We’re always looking for new contributors, so come along and learn the comedy ropes.
We hold weekly meetings where you can meet like-minded people and comedy fans. These meetings revolve around our 3 main groups - Sketches, Stand-Up and Improv. The meetings are used to rehearse and write new material, and put together and plan gigs!
As well as countless opportunities to perform at and attend gigs - some run by us and some run locally - we also put on socials. So don’t worry if your reason for joining is just a love of comedy! We screen films and TV chosen by members of ComSoc (with snacks!), go on pub trips and host comedy quizzes.
Membership is just £4. Your money goes directly to funding live comedy of all kinds, and makes us able to keep putting on better socials. Membership also gets you loads of discounted entry to the many comedy nights at the University and in the rest of Leeds.
