Society Profile: Comedy Soc

Name: LUU Comedy Soc

About: Comedy Society is made up of two sketch groups. Leeds Tealights are auditioned members and Fresh Milk is for everyone else. This society accepts everyone, you don’t even have to be a Leeds Uni student to join. If you aren’t a big performer, it doesn’t matter. Many members just enjoy watching, and there’s also the chance for some individual stand-up.

Where: Fresh Milk meet up twice a week (Monday- Baines Wing G.40, Wednesday – Baines Wing G.42), they talk about comedy and cobble together some sketch ideas.

Membership: £4 for the year. This gives you discounted entry to gigs.

Special Events: The Leeds Tealights will be auditioned in the next two weeks with a show to perform in November. Fresh Milk will be there to entertain in December.
For the watchers: go along to the Pigeon Hole Comedy. It’s a stand-up night at the Brudenell Social Club on the 6th October and costs £3 entry.

Interesting fact: All of the performing members went to Edinburgh last year. The Tealights performed a Fringe run (as they do every year) and won best student sketch group. In March, Fresh Milk attended the first ever Scottish Student Comedy Festival at Edinburgh University, and are heading back next year too!
