Britain has a reputation for creating some of the funniest, smartest and most surreal comedy in the world. Join us for this 4-week course that looks at how British comedy has developed on the big screen, for home audiences and abroad.


While British comedy films are widely considered to be unique amongst their peers, the story of British comedy is perhaps more complex and fascinating than you’d think.


When people think of British comedy, it’s often a particular ‘brand’ of it that they have in mind – be it Python, Carry On or romantic comedies featuring Hugh Grant. Needless to say, while those are all component parts, there’s a lot more to British comedy on screen and we’ll explore a few of the usual nooks and discover some unusual crannies. Ooh, Matron.



Course breakdown


Week 1:  Farce majeure

Week 2:  What a carry On…

Week 3:  He’s not the Messiah…

Week 4:  A very British romance


This is an online course, delivered via Zoom.


Places can be booked online only. Access details will be sent to participants by email the day before the first session.
