To Womb It May Concern

Women’s Stand Up Comedy Workshop

Performing & Writing workshop that focuses on Punchlines and Comedy Persona


What is the class? A safe space to share thoughts and feelings regarding how we view the world right now with all its pain and angst – and interpret them through comedy.

Why should I go? Finding the funny is a valuable skill and life enhancer; it strengthens many interactions and perspectives.

This class focuses on writing and sharing new material created in the workshop. We will work on comedy techniques including misdirection rule of 3, lists; exaggeration, repetition, emphasis timing and the all important, persona – who are you going to be when faced with an audience?

The day will be structured by writing and editing material, followed by an end of day ‘sharing of your ideas’. Yeah folks – you’re going to do a snappy gig. This will run for the last 30 minutes – you are welcome to invite guests to attend at 4pm.


Run by Dr Maggie Irving: teacher, speaker, and performer. PhD: The Female Clown – Plymouth University. Lectured in comedy at, Winchester University. Runs various workshops from: stand-up, physical comedy, contemporary clowning, and public speaking in the South West.
