Southampton Solent University Case Study

Southampton Solent University

The Background

The client was a growing University in Southampton offering an established list of performance, media and television degree courses to students. One new course which was in development and receiving much praise was the new BA Comedy degree course, the first in the country.

The Problem

The University was trying to find a person with the relevant academic qualifications who could not only lecture, but had a strong professional comedy background so students could be instructed in an academic and practical manner. This was to convey the real life issues around performing and writing within the comedy industry.

The Solution

Comicus was approached to help, and our Director (Matthew Willetts) began lecturing on the module in Comedy writing & performance and further helped develop the course alongside the head tutor.

The Result

Students not only get an academic appreciation of Comedy, but gain a much needed practical insight into the running of a competitive and sometimes cut throat industry.
