Laughter is the best medicine, or so they say. Clearly they forgot wine, carbs and Codeine but I know what they were getting at. Anyway, one of the biggest successes of the Easter holidays so far has been the comedy workshop that Middle Boy went to last week. Run by my old friend Laura, she’s one of the creators of the School of Comedy, holding workshops for 4-16 year olds. It started as an after-school club when Laura was teaching in London ten years ago. She then created a stage show around the children, took it to the Edinburgh Festival (amazing!) and it became the idea behind E4’s series of the same name. So, cut to Milford-on-Sea last week and Middle Boy walked into a room full of kids and spent the next three hours making up funny sketches and laughing his head off. He was flying when he came out. Anyway, I wanted you to know about it and if you need details of workshops elsewhere you’ll find them here. Now, pass the wine.

  1. That sounds briliant! My boys have been on the sports field all this week and I think my younger one,who was looking distinctly un-keen by day 4, would far rather be doing something like that with the school holidays.

  2. Have met the lovely Laura – looking forward to sending me kids on future workshops.
