This is a brilliant show. Very cleverly put together and whether you have been a teacher for far too long (like me!) or know nothing about the job you will be thoroughly entertained. Once word gets round this will be a sell out so book in advance to make sure you get to see this.

Great show - a funny, well put together, entertaining hour. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

A very cleverly crafted show which will amuse everyone - not just those who want to teach teachers how to teach or learn about how teachers are taught to teach or even pick up some tips on how to become teachers! We watched this very early on in Fringe - sure it will soon become a sell out show.

I was kinda hoping I'd learn more about teaching teachers (who are unreachable, as I know from experience :p) but it was hilarious anywas and I enjoyed every minute of it. Need to make my own "stationery belt" for when I'm trying to teach teachers in the future :D

This show is waaaaay smarter and funnier than you think it’s going to be! We went as a group of teachers thinking we knew what we’d get (and we did! There plenty of teacher-y jokes!) but it’s so much more than that too.

A proper well constructed, brilliant hour of comedy.

Teaching Teachers How To Teach is a comedy show that doesn't drop pace for a second and provides big laughs throughout.

Telegraph (4/5 stars) 41 days ago

Why don’t more teachers go into stand-up? After all, they’re used to public-speaking in front of unruly, even hostile audiences, and a highly developed sense of humour is presumably a job requirement.
