Laughing Matters
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Laughing Matters provides free comedy-based courses to those in recovery from addiction and individuals with mental health issues with the aim of helping develop confidence, self-expression and communication, all in a safe and supportive environment. Participants gain insights into areas such as writing, stage presence, developing a routine and they even get a chance to perform! As well as providing free courses throughout the Festival we are also holding a fundraiser. Come and support us and let us carry on extending the benefits of comedy to those who really need it.
