Collarts is excited to announce our latest course in Comedy, a thrilling new venture that celebrates our rapidly expanding presence across the industry. With an established history in music and entertainment, Comedy joins Collarts' latest course offerings—including Fashion Marketing, Content Creation, and Interior Design—that continue to deepen our connections in the creative and arts sector.
With campuses located in the heart of Fitzroy and Collingwood, Collarts has a strong and evergrowing network to the creative scenes of Melbourne; a city celebrated far and wide as Australia's comedy capital. As Ben O'Hara, the Dean of Collarts shares, "Comedy has been a part of Melbourne's creative scene for a long time, and we are elated to now make comedy part of the Collarts community."
"Australia is known as one of the world's best melting pots for comedy," O'Hara continued, "with stand-up comedy, theatre, street performance, cabaret, film, television, radio, and new media leading the way."
Teaching skills in comedy performance, comedy writing, production, and entrepreneurship, the course will see students gain the industry knowledge and skills needed to thrive. As O'Hara notes, "Students will not only have a deep understanding of comedy, but also develop a showcase and portfolio of work that's industry-ready, flexible and most of all, fun."
Applications for the Bachelor of Dramatic Arts (Comedy) and Diploma of Dramatic Arts (Comedy) are now open, with classes due to kick-off in September.
