Calling all young stand up comics, Britain’s Funniest Class is BACK! As we, for the fourth year running, search for the best young comedians in all of Beanotown to turn the nation’s frowns upside down! 

Our main mission at Beano is to lift up the nation with the power of laughter and a good joke! There's nothing like a great rib tickler to bring a group together. Who doesn’t love a good fart joke?

In order to get those hilarious ideas flowing – to create the funniest jokes of the year, we at Beano have assembled a brand new Bouncebackability lesson with Plazoom – Fun with Friends.

Beanotown is filled with friendships, from Dennis and Gnasher, JJ and Rubi, Minnie and Roger, Pie Face and Paul the Potato, the meaning of friendship and using jokes to make friends is a key element showcased in our stories. 

This free lesson, linked to the KS1 and KS2 curriculum can be taught as a half an hour PSHE lesson or an hour-long English lesson, helping your class socialise with one another and collaborate. Download it for free HERE and let that banter-ful brainstorming begin!  

So what kind of comedy standards should you be aiming for when you enter this year's Britain’s Funniest Class competition? Well, Voyager Class from Hitchin’s Whitehill Junior School were crowned last year’s winners with this hilarious joke which earned a staggering 43.4% of the vote!
