Stand-Up Dave Smith Gives Talk to Year 11 Students

Stand-up comedian Dave Smith visited a year 11 class, inviting them to take part in a workshop. The workshop provided useful skills, developing students’ ability to use humour in their work. The afternoon was aimed at growing the craft and  love of writing, students can embed these skills into their exam for their English Language Paper 2, Writing Viewpoints and Perspectives.  Dave discussed with students the opportunities available to make a living from writing professionally. The students can be seen really enjoying his talk, and at some points they were in complete hysterics!!

Dave has a background in stand-up comedy and has worked along side other comedians such as, Peter Kay and Michael McIntyre. Dave’s other passion is writing, his work can be found in The Sunday Times and Radio 4’s Home Truths, for more on Dave Smith take a look at
