PERFORMANCE SKILLS WORKSHOP
Oct 14 @ 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Would you like to take your place, up on the stage? This course is intended for the beginner, or those with a little experience of, writing and performing for the stage. Learn how to connect with, and hold, an audience. Have fun while you build confidence and self-esteem as part of a supportive group, with the aim of taking you out of your comfort zone, to where the magic happens!
Even if your end game isn’t a stage performance, there are many situations where these skills will be useful. The course will provide you with the tools you need, to present yourself, with confidence, in front of any audience.

By the end of the course you will have a 5 minute performance, to showcase to an invited audience.

Participant testimonial:
“In the group, it has been evident that we all started the workshops at different stages and levels of ability. However, Annabel has done well to keep things very level and to tailor things to suit all students’ abilities without it having a negative impact upon the group dynamic. In other words, the more advanced have felt suitably challenged and the less advanced haven’t felt lost or out of their depth. Each student has been continually working on their own individual areas and has been learning all the time, even though the group has been of mixed ability.”

£100 (payable in full before the course starts)
£90 (early bird – payment to be made by 31 July 2019)
There is one bursary place available (reduced price), for someone on a low income. Contact me, more for details.

LAUGHING HORSE 2-DAY BEGINNERS’ COMEDY COURSE
Oct 26 @ 12:00pm – 3:30pm

“I have found the course immensely helpful, as an actor for a number of years with the tutor very supportive and helpful. I have now managed to learn a whole new way to perform in just a couple of days, and will be able to use a lot of the techniques I learnt in my work” David Watson 2-day course graduate

What makes a good Stand-Up Comedian?  Is it a natural talent? Or can you learn how to be a Comedian?

There are many common misconceptions as to how this is done

Laughing Horse have  been teaching a comedy course for over 8 years that guides you through a proven process that professional comics use to write, perform and approach Stand-Up Comedy.

This course is not taught by theorists, lecturers or people that have never set foot on a stage.  It is delivered by professional comedians who are currently performing Stand Up several times a week.

“friendly, informative and well-structured. A supportive environment allows wannabe stand-ups to develop material quickly, and the course even offers opportunities to perform on stage… A no-brainer for anyone interested in the business, and a fun experience for any weekend wonder whose always wanted to know what it was like behind the mic stand.”Paul Doncaster, 2-day course graduate

They have huge experience in teaching this art form and giving valuable feedback, problem-solving and encouraging students to develop their routine. They have a wide-ranging knowledge of the industry and how to make career progress.

The beginners’ course is best suited to people who have never performed stand up comedy before, or for new comedians wanting to get a good grounding knowledge of how stand-up works.

The course is very practical and spread over a weekend with a graduation show on the Sunday evening open to friends, relatives and the public is advertised to the general public.

 Journalist Marc Iles attended one of our courses – see what he had to say: Click Here. “I would be lying if I said that I had not got the comedy bug… I now feel able to give it a whirl”

Over the 2 days you will cover:

  • Where material comes from and how to make routines of your own continuously.
  • How to write material
  • Practical writing exercises
  • Learning how professional comics deconstruct comedy by watching and discussing current comedians
  • Editing and performing material written
  • Microphone and performance Technique
  • How the industry works
“A lot of ground covered in a short space of time. It was brilliant. I now feel I have the tools to go on to be a comic” Claire Rawlinson  2-day course graduate

At the end of the course students perform on stage doing a 5 minute set at the graduation show.

Immerse yourself in Stand Up Comedy for a weekend (There will be homework)

Your help, support and advice were really great and I had a fantastic time. In fact, it has taken me about a fortnight to “come down” from the events of that weekend, particularly the performance in front of a paying audience at the Quadrant! I felt great and it was obviously a tremendous feeling when people actually laughed at what I had to deliver!! The real triumph for me was overcoming that fear and that is what will stay with me for the rest of my days!! Paul Collis  2-day course graduate

Previous students from the Laughing Horse Comedy include:

All appearing regularly on TV, National tours, Live DVD’s

As well as many working comedians around the circuit both in the UK and in America at all levels from open mic to professional.
