Jill Edwards Comedy Course Graduates Join the "Stand Up for the Week" Team...

The incredible news has now officially been announced and I can finally share my almost overwhelming excitement that four out of the regular team of six comedians for the next series (starting Nov 1st) of Channel 4's "Stand Up for the Week" will be Jill Edwards Comedy Workshops Graduates. These wonderful and talented comedians are current SUFTW regular Seann Walsh and new SUFTW regular team members Simon Evans, Romesh Ranganathan and Angela Barnes. I've been close to bursting with excitement since they told me but swore me to secrecy months ago, until the news had been officially announced. These four have been actively involved in supporting the next generation of new comedians starting out on my stand-up comedy courses at Komedia, Brighton. They drop in during my comedy classes to talk to my newbie comedians, MC our end of term New Act Nights and Headline or MC at Comic Boom. I could not be prouder or more delighted for these lovely comedy course graduates who've always made me so proud.
