LIVERPOOL BID COMPANY
LIVERPOOL BID COMPANY PARTNERSHIP
The Liverpool Comedy Festival teamed up with Liverpool BID Company in 2016 to give city centre workers the chance of a lifetime!
Led by professional comedy and Festival Director, Sam Avery, the 'office/shop jokers' will be given a stand-up masterclass over a six week course before taking to the stage during the festival in late September.
Participants learnt how to write develop and deliver their very own comedy routines which culminating in a smashing performance at Laughterhouse's Fenwick Street venue.
As part of this unique partnership, 16 businesses were also able to apply for "Happy Hour" workshops that focused on humour, health and well-being in the workplace.
The BID Company entered into this partnership as part of a drive to develop a range of tailored business support services. It follows its recent Mystery Shop survey of a record 200 city centre businesses which is aimed at improving levels of customer service in shops, restaurants, bars and hotels.
We were thrilled to work alongside the BID Company on this exciting project. We’ve delivered programmes like this for 14 years and the journey that participants go on between the first week and the show is incredible – they also often tell us how the experience has helped them in their personal and professional lives.
