Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Wheeler Centre proudly present

Comic In Tuition: Can Comedy Be Taught?

Are ‘funny bones’ something you’re born with, or can they grow with time?

In partnership with The Wheeler Centre, we’ll look at ‘Nature Vs Nurture’ in comedy. Schools around the country are now using comedy as an educational tool to improve literacy, confidence and to explore different points of view. How can comedy help us learn? And what else can it teach?

In this special, one-off event we’ll discuss mentoring and directing, comedy as a learning tool and its place in the school curriculum.

Hosted by Wes Snelling, with Steph TisdellMeg UptonEvan Watts and 2019 National Class Clowns winner Patti Fawcett.

Please note, the following performances will be filmed: Sat 30 Mar.
