Meg Upton is an educator, teaching artist, lecturer and researcher in drama education. She has taught in primary and secondary schools and currently works at Deakin University. A previous education manager at Malthouse Theatre and MTC, a one-time judge of Class Clowns, and an advocate for the development of a compulsory unit for teachers called Humour in the Classroom 101, Meg has learned from the many fifteen year olds she has encountered that comedy can be intuitive, is often impulsive, but can also be taught.
