LOL Squad

LOL Squad 2017 involves a number of projects with a selection of participants from the 2015 and 2016 Class Clowns program.

Together with a range of professional mentors, including Anne Edmonds, Aunty Donna, Scott Brennan, Nelly Thomas, Wes Snelling and Amy Bennett, LOL SQUAD wrote, acted, filmed and edited original comedy sketches and performed 4 live shows at Arts Centre Melbourne during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Also returning were LOL Squad alumni to develop and film a comedy sketch pilot titled Modest Prodigies. This fabulous addition to the program also allowed a collaboration between some of the 2015 and 2016 national Class Clowns participants and 3 interstate young comedians were brought to Melbourne to film the pilot.
