HERlarious - Comedy & Confidence for Creatives

Are you a female creative who wants to explore your funny bones?

Do you lack the confidence to express your ideas?

Are you aware that the top rated advertisements use humour?

Did you know that less than 3% of ads depict women in leadership roles, being intelligent or having a sense of humour?

It’s time to change things up in the world of advertising so we are launching our latest initiative, HERlarious, with a very special evening of workshops, panel discussions and live stand up comedy.

HERlarious - Comedy & Confidence for Creatives

About this event

Starts: Tuesday 9 October 2018 6:00 PM

Ends: Tuesday 9 October 2018 9:30 PM

At: Bartle Bogle Hegarty 60 Kingly Street, London, W1B 5DS

Organised by: Funny Women

HERlarious is open to anybody working in the creative industries who would like to express their ideas more confidently and freely using some of the tricks of the comedy trade.

If you are a first-jobber, intern, returner to the workplace or simply in need of a change of direction then a comedy fix is guaranteed to boost your confidence, whatever your level!

Get valuable advice on how to ‘perform’, write great copy, bring your ideas to life and develop techniques to communicate more effectively. We will cover creating your own material, interpreting body language, storytelling and developing a strong narrative.

On the night you will be able to take part in two workshops to boost your skills and confidence levels. Choose from:

Stand Up to Stand Out

Improvise to Succeed

Write Your Own Comedy Script

Produce, Direct and Cast Funny People

Every workshop will be facilitated by a team of performers, writers, producers and directors with first-hand experience of the comedy industry, followed by a panel discussion and some brilliant live comedy, of course!

If your organisation would like to partner us please email [email protected]

Discounted tickets are available for our partner organisations (see below) £20 plus booking fee and students/interns £12 plus booking fee.  Contact your network for details or email us on [email protected]

We are thrilled that Bartle, Bogle, Hegarty has agreed to host this event in their fabulous central London offices. 

We are proud to be supported by Creative Equals, SheSays and Young Creative Council.
