Improv Festival

LMA produces The Australian Improv Comedy Festival. June 5-7, 2020. Join us!

Improv is for everyone

Improv isn’t just for Comedians. It teaches clearer communication, faster thinking, improved creativity, confidence, and more. But don’t take our word for it, listen to what LMA Students have to say about their experience and then read: Who Should Take Improv & Why.

The future is sketchy

Do you love Sketch Comedy? Do you scour YouTube for the latest Saturday Night Live episodes? Do you aspire to write, perform, or produce funny things for other people to watch? LMA’s comedy writing classes, improv-to-sketch training, and our production arm, Comedy & Co. can help you find a future in the funny business.

Let's get down to business

LMA’s Professional Development Programs will improve your team’s presentation and communication skills, help them think quickly, react confidently, and behave authentically, as well as provide invaluable tools for collaboration.

We're taking off!

Our unique curriculum is expanding in Surry Hils, North Melbourne, and soon Parramatta with more Instructors, Classes, and Shows. Don’t miss out: Connect with @laughmasters on social media to save with Early Bird Rego and hear about upcoming events.

Five Good Reasons to Choose Laugh Masters Academy

Chicago Born

Our teachers have trained at the top schools in LA, New York – and Chicago – the official birthplace of Improv & Sketch comedy.

Small Classes

Unlike some improv theatre classes we keep ours at around 15 people so everyone gets personal attention and instruction.

We Teach What You Watch

The people you love on TV and in films, from Tina Fey to Steve Carell, all trained in Long Form Improv.

We Got Your Back!

Some improv theatre classes focus on “winning,” but improv isn’t a sport. We’re collaborative, not competitive.

Life Skills

Our Level 1 Improv Classes are as much about becoming a better human as they are about being funny.
