The Actors Centre

How to Play Comedy on Screen

WHAT IS IT? A fun one-day workshop that will help you develop the skills you need to prepare and play a comedy character on screen. HOW WILL IT WORK? Using scripted scenes from TV and film, Caroline will guide you through understanding the structure of comedy screenplays, and what makes a funny character. Through making clear, dynamic thought process choices, and observing the comic rhythm of the script, you will have the opportunity to rehearse and record your scene on camera. Scripts will be provided, a camera operator will be present, and all scenes will be reviewed at the end of the day. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? A clear method for approaching comedy scripts which you can apply to auditions and professional work on screen, helping you to stand out from the crowd and feel more confident. Participant Price £55. Observer Price £15.
