How to be funny: Physical Comedy

5pm-7pm, UK time

If you're not in the UK

your local time should be:

(Please double check this)

Let’s take advantage of this socially distant time to learn and/or polish up our physical comedy skills! We’ll discover how to design and execute physical comedy riffs to sprinkle into any performance, as an actor, comedian, clown or just to delight your family members on those zoom calls!

We’ll examine how to break down physical comedy into its building blocks and how to design a sequence.
And we’ll encourage the playfulness and pleasure in stupidity necessary to have fun doing it.

You don’t need any experience to take this workshop.
