Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.
And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

DoES DoES Standup Comedy Training
As a last hoorah for our outgoing Boost member Kirsty Styles, and a first hoorah for six (un)willing DoES members and friends, our volunteers have been invited to do a 10-minute comedy performance about… anything they bloody well like at DoES DoES Standup on Wednesday 12 October 2022.
Made something? Done something? Found something? Know something? All thoughts and feelings welcome!
There’s an opportunity to work on your material and have a practice on Wednesday 14 September with a pro from Bright Club Manchester and there’s also a **bonus opportunity** to perform at Bright Club Manchester on Tuesday 11 October, which is the day before our gig. Call it a final practice or tell yourself you’re on the comedy circuit.
Contact Kirsty at email@example.com to find out more
