King's College London
Running-a-Mock is a springboard for engaging with comedy performance for students, while also being an opportunity for getting connected with the London comedy community. Dedicated to providing accessible and educational comedy experiences, we host free weekly workshops and performances in improv, sketch and stand-up comedy.
We host weekly rehearsals and instructive workshops on comedy technique and performance at Strand Campus for our members. Each week, a particular aspect of comedy will be highlighted and workshopped in a collaborative setting, with members being encouraged to share their own perspectives on the skill or technique. In addition, these workshops will create a space for members of the King’s community to hone their comedy craft.
Running-a-Mock utilises London’s many opportunities for performers, organising society outings and bringing comedy professionals to campus. Our biweekly performances on Strand Campus showcase both members of Running-a-Mock and professional comedians. These shows are open to all members of the King’s community, as watching and performing comedy to an audience is an essential component of becoming a competent comedian. These shows rely heavily on audience participation, are inclusive spaces, and provide a great insight into the theatrical community at King’s.
