Event description

Description

A comedy workshop tailored for you to learn new skills, step out of your comfort zone, have a really good laugh and get motivated for a creative project.

You don't need any experience of comedy writing - just have a interest in comedy, writing and being creative. This is also a chance to network and meet new people with similar interests to you.

You will learn what makes something funny, how to mine your own life for comedy inspiration, try some improvisation, learn about story arcs and characters...and more!

In each workshop you learn;

  • What makes something funny

  • What it really means to 'write'

  • How to bust through creative blocks

  • How to generate comedy ideas from personal experiences and stories

  • How to expand on ideas and subjects

  • How to inject comedy into your own projects for stories, radio plays, stand up, sketch and more

  • How to create something from nothing

  • Improvising techniques

  • Performing tips

  • How to create characters

  • How to create a story arc

  • How to get into the comedy world for performance or stand up

  • What it takes to write a show or set

  • How to tackle negative thoughts about not being good enough or starting a project

  • Plus, you will get 1-2-1 time with me and get to ask any questions about the industry

The workshops are run by Jane Postlethwaite a multi-comedy award finalist who has had sell out runs of her one woman shows at Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals over the last few years. She has also been heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Cumbria and BBC Radio Extra. You can find out more about Jane at www.jane-postlethwaite.com
