Monkey Barrel Polytechnic 2017/18 is go! Every Monday night between 19:00 and 21:00 our top class teachers dispense comedy knowledge by the bucket load. This includes stand-up, improv, sketch, clowining courses and more. We want to help develop comedy and comedy performers in Scotland, that's why all Level 1 courses are free. Level 2 courses are not free, but what we can say is that we will make it as cheap as possible and all monies go to the teachers, none goes to Monkey Barrel Comedy.

If you would like more details on the courses or would like to book your place just contact us and we will sort it out.
