NEW COMEDY WORKSHOPS AT THE KINGS ARMS SALFORD
 

Star date: 7th April 2018

PLACES AVAILABLE AT STAND UP AND SKETCH WRITING CLASSES

Mirth masters ComedySportz are starting a new eight week course in stand-up, improv and sketch writing at the Kings Arms on Saturday afternoons. Ian Leslie discovers how anyone can develop their comedic voice and hone a first stand up set.

Full details here...


Have you watched TV and groaned at the stand-ups and thought you could be funnier or more original? Perhaps you're quick-witted and could go down a storm doing improvised comedy. Or maybe you just fancy giving it a go. If so, your luck could well be in. ComedySportz have couple of spots available for a great new course.

ComedySportz are a group of comedians responsible for many events throughout this region and beyond. They are the team behind Improv Mullet and Let's See What Happens, and are back at the Kings Arms to pass on their knowledge to the next generation of comedians. The workshops will give insight into the world of improv and stand-up, and sessions cover everything from generating material to mic technique.

The group are Edinburgh Fringe faves and have performed and taught across the UK and the US, and, with this wealth of knowledge and experience, are delivering workshops that are fun, supportive and challenging.

They have a whole host of activities that build confidence and help to unlock the humour of any given situation. Character, story and object-work are key features along with an introduction to scenes and games. The course places the focus firmly on enjoyment and is open to anyone looking to develop new performance skills, to develop a comedic voice and hone a first stand-up set. 

The format isn't rigid, and going off script is actively encouraged for those looking to experiment. Not only will participants gain communication skills, but also the course has been known to increase confidence and can help to combat anxiety prior to public speaking.

"Whether you're an absolute beginner or someone who's dipped their toe and wants to learn more this course is for you" says improviser and workshop leader Sean Mason.

Sean should know; he joined the company after taking the classes himself..."Improv has plenty to teach us for life on and off stage, so whatever your reason for taking a course you'll find something for you Ė and have plenty of fun whilst doing it."

Think you have what it takes to make people laugh? If so, then don't miss out on your chance to develop new skills, meet new people and have plenty of laughs yourself...

The eight week course run by Comedy Sportz take place every Saturday 1pm to 3pm in the theatre spaces at the Kings Arms on Bloom Street.

It actually starts today, 7th April and runs until 2nd June but due to late cancellations, new participants can start the course on week two.
