Jill's Advanced Stand-Up Comedy Workshop's 2020 Online Comedy Advent Calendar...

My fantastic advanced stand-up comedy workshop group made a bonkers online comedy advent calendar for 2020 - just for fun! I asked them all to film a 15 to 30 second funny clip. It could be a song, joke, sketch, animation - whatever they wanted to do. One of my very talented comedy students Obe Arif designed a frame so that we could put each of the clips into an animated online advent calendar "window" with a number and a door that opened and closed! I then posted a different "window" from a different member of my stand-up comedy class every day on social media. I've had some very nice feedback about them and they seem to have given people a daily laugh during this rather dark time. 

My advanced comedy workshop group are amazing. I've been through a unique time in our history with them. When lockdown hit we faltered for a bit and then just continued with our comedy classes online. I wanted to take advantage of it being online. I wanted to turn it into an opportunity. So we set about learning everything we needed to know about creating our own online comedy content. A group within the group started making "New to Boom" with me. And the comedy advent calendar was a way for me to get everyone else to have a go at creating their own online comedy content too. It kept them all focused and creative during the last lockdown. And I love the results...

We've also edited all the clips together into one big comedy advent calendar. It's just under ten minutes long. We hope you enjoy watching it! Merry Christmas to you - one and all!
