École nationale de l’humour

Since 1988, the École nationale de l’humour (ÉNH), a French only school, is passionately pursuing its unique and original mission: to offer professional training to creators who wish to specialize in the field of humour as comedians, stand-ups or authors. The ÉNH is a private, non-profit (NPO) educational institution, recognized by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education and supported by the Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communications, Canadian Heritage and the Mécénat program Placements Culture of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
