Comedy Workout

November 3 @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm GMT


Join us for a live Funny Women Comedy Workout, at our brand new venue in Rochester – this is part of a varied community programme designed to bring us back together again IRL, whether it’s to warm up our creative brains, flex our chuckle muscles, or stretch out our funny bones.

Nic Lamont is an actor, writer and one half of comedy duo The Twins Macabre and our guest facilitator for the evening.

In ‘Creating Comedy Characters’ we will come up with some weird and wonderful personas! Drawn from sketch comedy and clowning techniques, together we will build a new character, work on how they stand, how they move and how they interact. A relaxed and fun workshop to get our creativity & imagination flowing!

Nic’s character comedy has been featured on BBC3’s Live at the Electric, BBCR4’s Sketchorama and across UK Festivals. She has toured the UK, Australia and performed in the West End with parody stage show Graeme of Thrones and is the lead in comedy-horror feature film Egomaniac (Amazon Prime). Nic is currently working her one-woman show, a punk-rock-comedy about the life of Mary Shelley.

Meet like-minded women with a passion for comedy, learn how to generate material through improvised comedy, sharing scripts, sets, jokes and ideas from comedians, writers and creators and receive comedy advice from the Funny Women Team. There will be a bit of relaxed performance time too.

We know that comedy can be scary, so this event provides a platform for you to get match fit ready to get back on stage or to perform comedy for the first time. Even if you’re already a regular on the circuit, the Comedy Workout will provide you with an opportunity to try out new material in the company of your peers.

Tickets are PWYW with a minimum £1 donation.
