SHOWCASING THE BEST OF BCN's LOCAL COMEDY TALENT
Our Logan Murray Workshops over the years have been a catalyst initially for the creation of many of the city´s performers but the steady stream of talent flowing into BCN has maintained a strong interest in local residents doing and creating a vibrant, diverse English comedy scene. Now with a couple of seasons under their belt the S.U.C.K. shows are the primary group keeping the local Stand Up scene flourishing, while B.I.G. have really developed into a formidable comedy improv force with a loyal following. They are both open and welcoming international groups who can be the perfect outlet for anybody looking to hook up with like minded brave, comic, creative souls in Barcelona.
