Comedy Crash Course

22/03/2021 @ 12:00 pm 26/03/2021 @ 2:00 pm GMT


Awards season is just around the corner! We’re giving you tools to navigate it successfully with our one-week fast-track Comedy Crash Courses featuring an hour of expert coaching and guidance a day and a showcase with feedback on Friday.

Facilitated by four industry experts, this course provides tailored tips and advice to help you refine your performance style mentally and physically, develop and construct material and refine your comedic skills.

Lynne Parker is the award-winning producer who created Funny Women In 2002. Lynne will begin the week with a workshop that connects you, builds your confidence and kick starts your creative brain into action.

Sooz Kempner Funny Women Awards Variety Award winner, singer and standup, has been performing comedy live since 2009. With the pandemic, she quickly adopted the online space, releasing songs, sketches and whole Edinburgh shows. She’ll be teaching you about self taping effectively.

Monica Gaga is a British-born black African queer improviser, facilitator, host, performer and producer. She trained in Community Theatre at East 15 Acting School, and her boundless love for improv stems from time spent at Second City in Chicago. She’ll lead you through improv exercises aimed at making you relax into your performance.

Daily workshops are held on Zoom, from 12.00pm to 1.00pm Monday to Thursday and recorded should you miss a day.

The week culminates with a live online showcase where you’ll receive invaluable feedback from the facilitators and your peers. This is split into two parts with an hour interval on Friday 26th March 11.00am to 12.00pm & 1.00pm to 2.00pm.
