The course will be run by improv comedy veteran Sarah Hansmann. As well as years of experience performing and teaching improv comedy, Sarah toured South Africa as one of the top comics from the Cape Comedy Collective, appearing on tv, headlining festivals and promotional tours. Sarah has developed this 6 week course, which is a first for Guernsey, in the hopes of getting the local stand up comedy scene up and running.
