Mo the Comedian visited Pimlico Academy
At Pimlico Academy we have many ex-students who have gone on to work in television, film, theatre and comedy. One of the biggest rising stars at the moment is Mo Gilligan, or 'Mo the Comedian' as he is often known.
Mo came to Pimlico as a student and left in 2005. He studied BTEC in Performing Arts which is where talent for comedy was first noticed, especially his impressions and others.
Since then he has become a big name in the comedy scene and is currently touring the country with his 'Coupla Cans' tour.
Mo has always been keen to keep contact, and came into the school to meet some students and film some scenes with them for one of his upcoming shows. Many students were star struck and keen to get his autograph and have their photo taken with him.
The students experienced what it is like to work behind the camera and how it differs to what they are taught in lessons about stage performance. Mo spoke to students about his journey from being a Pimlico student to touring the country and performing in front of hundreds of people every week.
We wish Mo every success for the future and enjoy that so many ex-Pimlico students have gone onto achieve excellent successes in the arts.
