Birmingham Rep announces the launch of brand-new project: LGBTQTeeHee!

Birmingham Rep, in collaboration with Birmingham LGBT Centre are proud to present their brand-new project LGBTQTeeHee!

This exciting new project, created by Birmingham Rep’s Creative Learning team, is designed to provide a safe space for members of the LGBTQ+ community to develop comedy and public speaking skills. Taking place across 10-weeks, this innovative programme is supported by professional comedians, such as renowned comedian, educator and comedy coach Angie Belcher.

Successful applicants will develop their comedic writing skills, develop a comedy persona, and hone their craft and material into creating a routine which will be performed live at the Birmingham Rep this November.

LGBTQTeeHee! is open to anyone from the LGBTQ+ community and will take place at Birmingham Rep and Birmingham LGBT Centre aspart of BEDLAM Showcase, a celebration of the arts, mental health and wellbeing.

Birmingham Rep Senior Drama Practitioner, Robert Beck, said:

“Through comedy, we hope to build mental health resilience, reduce stigma and encourage honest discussions around mental health in a fun and supportive environment.”

The Birmingham Rep will be hosting a free Comedy Masterclass on Sat 3rd Aug, 12pm – 4.30pm at Birmingham LGBT Centre. All are welcome to attend and learn more about the project and begin the process of creating their own stand-up comedy routine.
