Launchpad were pleased to announce that funding was funding via the
Community Foundation & Comic Relief to run further stand up comedy workshops

Professional performer and writer, Sharon Race, again facilitated the shorter in length workshops which began in June 2015.

A showcase was staged to celebrate Disability Awareness Day.

We wanted to give it a punchy sequel name. 'The Revenge' didn't quite fit,
so 'The Return' it was!

Photographs from that showcase are here.
