We host weekly rehearsals and instructive workshops on comedy technique and performance at the Strand Campus for our members. Each week, a particular aspect of comedy will be highlighted and workshopped in a collaborative setting, with members being encouraged to share their own perspectives on the skill or technique. In addition, these workshops will create a space for members of the King’s community to hone their comedy craft.
Running-a-Mock utilises London’s many opportunities for performers, organising society outings and bringing comedy professionals to campus. Our biweekly performances on Strand Campus showcase both members of Running-a-Mock and professional comedians. These shows are open to all members of the King’s community, as watching and performing comedy to an audience is an essential component of becoming a competent comedian. These shows rely heavily on audience participation, are inclusive spaces, and provide a great insight into the theatrical community at King’s.
We also feature one of the UK's best and most decorated student improv troupes. The troupe roughly consists of 10 members and performs both on and off-campus. Most recently, the Running-a-Mock troupe performed a sold-out show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019. Auditions at the beginning of each term.
