Universal Comedy

uclogoballUniversal Comedy is a Charity and Social Enterprise providing practical opportunities in the skills of producing and performing comedy for people with ill health, as a vehicle for them to develop their core skills, confidence and self-esteem, as well as promoting their health and well-being. The ultimate goal is to enable them to reintegrate with their community through moving onto further social, learning or work activities.

The Company provides a fresh and innovative approach to achieving significant health, social and employability outcomes for people with ill health ( independently evaluated by the Mental Health Foundation 2011).

As a Company they work in partnership with Health, Social Care and Employability (HSCE) organisations across Scotland who have clients they can help, and as a Charity they provide a self-referral route for individuals with ill health who are isolated in the community. They have a growing social network where graduates and trainees can participate in Glasgow International Comedy Festivals, Edinburgh International Festivals, and local Mental Health and Arts Festivals throughout the year.
