Class Clowns is a national comedy competition for teenagers, aimed at developing their comedic writing and performance, through a five-minute original set. As part of the program, the participants are also mentored by a professional comedian. This year, two BGGS students, Ruby Harvey (11L) and Emma Armitage-Ho (12R), participated in the competition heats at the Brisbane Powerhouse on Saturday 12 March.
Congratulations to Ruby for winning her heat and advancing to the State Finals! Emma Armitage-Ho was also invited to compete in the upcoming finals—an exciting development from the evening.
‘I decided to participate because I enjoy making people laugh and sought to improve my performing skills. The workshop was a welcoming environment and an excellent opportunity to practice on stage. Performing was nerve-racking at first, but I was quickly able to relax and confidently deliver my set. I have placed first in my heat and have moved onto the state competition this weekend.’—Ruby Harvey.
BGGS wishes Ruby and Emma the best for Saturday 19 March at the Brisbane Powerhouse. Bring the house down!
