Masterclass with Stand-Up Comic Sarah Bridgeman

Drama students from NPTC Group of Colleges found out what it’s really like to be a stand-up comic recently when comedian Sarah Bridgeman came into NPTC Group of Colleges to give a masterclass.

Sarah has been performing comedy all over the UK since 2009. She has performed at the Glee Club and regularly gigs for Mirth Control, one of the UK’s biggest booker of comedy acts. She has done well in various competitions and is a regular on Radio Wales as a funny news commentator and will soon be taking part in a quiz programme for TV Company Made in Cardiff.

On top of telling her story of how she came into the industry, Sarah passed on her inside knowledge of being a stand-up and gave tips and advice to the fledgeling comedians.

Zoe Arrieta, Subject Leader for Drama at NPTC Group of Colleges said: “It’s such a fantastic opportunity for our students to learn from people in the industry across all disciplines. Sarah was a joy to have in the classroom and the students really enjoyed.”
