‘For Veterans by Veterans’

Project COMEDY

Project COMEDY is a morale-boosting stand-up comedy course for veterans which allows students to learn how to write material, build rapport with an audience and perform a stand-up routine in a live finale. 

With funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund and delivered by Laughing Horse Comedy, this is an incredible way to stay connected, stay positive and stay laughing through the lockdown.

Project Comedy is a morale booster designed to support our beneficiaries through the winter months.

It’s common knowledge that the military runs on its humour, and the ability to laugh about difficult situations truly allows a beneficial release. When the opportunity became available to deliver Project COMEDY, we knew it would be a great success!

Online courses are being delivered by Laughing Horse Comedy and will culminate in a live-streamed stand-up show, which will be compared by well-known comedians and allow the students to put all of their newly learned skills to the test.

They say that laughter is the best medicine, and, following such a tough year, we are grateful to be able to provide such an exciting project.   

The veterans involved will use weekly sessions to build up their ability to write and perform their own stand-up routine, which we are sure will be a fitting tribute to the military sense of humour.

Adapting to a COVID environment

The group has used lockdown to develop their ability to deliver online training through a combination of Google Classrooms and video meetings. This allows training to be delivered, feelings of isolation to be reduced and wellbeing to be improved.

One participant said of the project: “I’m an absolute beginner to stand-up but know I am going to be a better person after this course.”
