Eran Thomson


In 2012 Eran Thomson returned to Sydney after an extended trip to LA where he trained in Improv at The Second City and studied Sketch Comedy Writing at The Groundings. His desire to keep learning, and a lack of “Chicago Style” schools with the same pedigree and calibre of Teachers he’d worked with in LA, led him to found Laugh-Masters Academy later that same year.

LMA began by offering weekend workshops with Improv Instructors flown in from the top schools in the US and over time grew into the comedy school it is today, offering 8-week classes, 4 terms a year in both Sydney and Melbourne – all the while driven by Eran’s desire to keep learning, keep laughing and bring a sense of community to the Australian comedy landscape.

Eran’s comedy experience also includes Stand-Up Comedy at NYU and Comedy Screen Writing at the UCLA Writer’s Studio. He is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill’s top ranked School of Media and Journalism and has been writing and making funny things professionally as an award-winning Copywriter and Creative Director in agencies like BBH and TBWA for over 15 years.

More recently he has been leveraging his writing and comedy chops as a commercial Writer and Film Director represented worldwide by Chimney, and as the Executive Producer of LMA’s comedy video production arm, Comedy & Co.
