An Introduction to Comedy Technique

WHAT IS IT? An introduction to comedy technique. From master and servant, to situation comedy, status transactions, one-upmanship, punch and judy, and from Chaplin to Fawlty Towers, there is a common over turning of the power mode involved in making comedy. HOW WILL IT WORK? This workshop helps you get used to a simple improvisation technique that will help comedy playing and improvisation. WAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? Your own innate potential for comedy is released as well as understanding exactly what makes people laugh. This is not stand up but comic acting. Price: £20.
