TRAINING
Comic Gold: Discover the Clown in You Oct 8
Posted September 30, 2017
This comedy workshop is great for performers who want to hone their comedic skills and connect more deeply with their audience: actors, stand-ups, improvisers, writers, directors, dancers, jugglers, puppeteers, circus performers, etc.

If you are a performer wishing to take your comedy up a notch, then this workshop is for you. Utilizing clown theory, we will unearth the stuff that makes you uniquely funny! Starting from a place of openness and honesty, the clown in you will freely emerge. Learn to trust your instincts and accept your truth. Create a stronger physical presence and forge a genuine connection with your audience. Small detailed work will yield huge results!

A fun and challenging three hours!
