Silver Comedy

We offer interactive comedy sessions provided by a nationwide network of professional comedians and comedy trainers who are trained in our techniques. We do a broad range of bespoke work ranging from interactive comedy engagement sessions to filmed productions starring older people who we are working alongside. Our work is therapeutic and is aimed at enhancing wellbeing and encouraging social cohesion while counteracting counteracting loneliness.Typical interactive comedy engagement sessions last two hours with a mid session coffee break. They include warm up games, role play and lead to improvised comedy dramas including murder mysteries and usually end with a bit of music. We make good use of props to help people enjoy the role play.For typical comedy engagement sessions we can supply one comedy trainer and two stand up comedians but can also offer just one comedian subject to budget available.Please note that we are not merely entertainers, we do much more than this by seeking to involve everyone in making their own fun!
