School of Comedy is a British television show that premiered on E4 in 2009 and ran for two seasons until 2010. The show was a sketch comedy series featuring a group of talented young performers. The cast included Will Poulter, Beth Rylance, Jack Harries, Evie Henderson, Max Brown, Ella Ainsworth, Lilly Ainsworth, Phoebe Abbott, Hector McCormick, Charlie Wernham, Olivia Archer-Deakin, Joseph Taylor, and Grace Vance.

The premise of the show was that the young cast members were all students at a fictional school called the School of Comedy, where they were being trained to become the next generation of great comedians. The show consisted of sketches that were written by the cast members themselves, as well as professional writers.

The sketches covered a wide range of topics and were often satirical or exaggerated. The show poked fun at various aspects of daily life, such as school, family, and relationships. Some of the sketches were parodies of popular movies or TV shows, while others were original concepts created by the cast.

The show's humor was generally family-friendly, and the sketches were appropriate for audiences of all ages. However, there were occasional moments of crude or risqué humor that were more appropriate for older viewers.

One of the standout performers on the show was Will Poulter, who played a variety of characters throughout the series. Poulter was particularly adept at physical comedy, and many of his sketches involved him performing elaborate stunts or physical gags.

Another standout performer was Beth Rylance, who had a talent for playing quirky and offbeat characters. Rylance was particularly good at creating memorable catchphrases or mannerisms that would be repeated throughout the series.

Overall, School of Comedy was a fun and entertaining show that showcased the talents of a group of young performers. The sketches were smart, funny, and often a bit silly, and the cast had great chemistry together. Despite its relatively short run, the show has gained a cult following over the years, and many fans still enjoy revisiting the sketches and characters from the series.
