The Bristol Revunions are the University of Bristol's sketch comedy society. We encourage people to get involved in performing and writing sketch comedy in a friendly, welcoming environment.
Under normal circumstances we would hold free, weekly workshops in person in the SU but this year we will be doing something a bit different (don’t worry they will still be free and weekly). These are a really relaxed, fun way for everyone – regardless of any previous sketch-making experience – to get together, play a few silly games, and try to write some sketches. There’s really no pressure to perform and the focus is on enjoying yourself rather than being funny, have no fear!
Historically we have put on over 20 shows a year in Bristol and we aim to do the same this year (albeit in a different format), so there are loads of opportunities to get involved. We also have a fortnightly show called ‘LaughBox’ which invites new and experienced stand-ups to try out new and different material or simply try stand-up for the first time! Whether you want to write, perform, learn how to tech, try stand-up or even try a bit of everything, we encourage people to take part in all aspects of producing a sketch show and/or create your own comedy! Every month we put on a ‘scratch night’ where we perform newly written sketches. Anyone and everyone can get involved with these, either by writing sketches or performing – or both, why not!
As well as this we also put on shows in Leeds, Cambridge and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. You can read reviews for our 2019 shows here.
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date with the latest news on upcoming workshops, events and shows. Message us on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about us or the Bristol comedy scene. You could also try checking out our website here. We also hope to do some workshops and meet-ups in person if possible (socially distanced obvs) so everyone can get to know each other better! Come and say hello to us (sort-of) in person at our stall at the virtual Fresher’s Fair – we’d love to chat to you. See you in the new term!
