We've got a one of a kind opportunity for Scottish High School students to participate in the world's largest arts festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!

We're inviting any Scottish pupils interested in comedy, comedy writing or performance to join us for a free workshop on Saturday, August 20th led by industry professionals in advance of the opportunity to perform at the Gilded Balloon on Sunday, August 21st. 

Last year our Celebrity Guest Judges included comedy superstars Jo Brand and Kevin Day, CEO of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Susan Provan as well as Artistic Director of the Gilded Balloon, Karen Koren. 

The winner of Class Clowns will receive two VIP Festival Passes to the Gilded Balloon, a Class Clowns goodie bag and automatic entry into the quarter finals of So You Think You're Funny? - the UK's leading  comedy newcomer competition which has seen the likes of Russell Howard, Peter Kay, Lee Mack, Kevin Bridges, Jimmy Carr, Sarah Millican, Aisling Bea and Daniel Sloss make it to comedy stardom. 

Register now for your chance to be included in this unique competition! 

Please note that under 18s will require consent from a parent or guardian.
