School of Comedy is a British character-based comedy sketch show which was turned into a television show after a successful run of review shows at the Edinburgh festival. The cast was entirely made up from members of the after school drama club of The Harrodian School in London, run by teacher Laura Lawson. The show comprised sketches involving a very diverse group of characters; from a lesbian couple in 1940s war-time Britain, to a pair of South-African security guards. The show is unique from other comedy sketch shows because even though the show's content is mature enough to need to be shown after the watershed, the roles were all played by school aged performers. The show ran for two series on E4 from 1 October 2009 to 18 October 2010. The show has been credited with starting the careers of Will Poulter, Charlie Wernham and Jack Harries. Poulter has gone on to star in films such as The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and We're the Millers, while Harries has gone on to start a YouTube channel named “JacksGap”, which currently has over 4 million subscribers and has made Harries both well-known and popular on the internet. Wernham has gone on to play parts in Bad Education, Some Girls, Inbetweeners and currently plays Robbie Roscoe in Hollyoaks. Beth Rylance has since had a lead role in The Ministry of Curious Stuff and has had various guest and advertising roles.
