To Womb It May Concern

To Womb It May Concern: Comedy, Clowning & Characters ONLINE class

For women who want to explore and develop their comedy persona, characters, and clowning, within a context.

What makes something funny and how do we write it? Find out on this fun, informative and dynamic workshop. This class focuses on the art of stand-up and how we might include clowning skills, and starting points such as myth, archetype and popular characters, to create strong, relatable and definable characters in a performance. 

We will use physical language, emotional responses, models, and writing techniques to help generate believable characters. How might you include this new creation in an online or on-stage set?

The day will be structured by writing and editing material, practicing your newly discovered character (s) – followed by an end of day ‘sharing of your ideas’.

Dr Maggie Irving is a teacher, comedian & researcher. Trained with Jennie Eclair, Tony Allen, Philippe Gaulier, John Wright and Keith Johnstone. 


This workshop will be hosted online through Zoom. Book a ticket, and we will send you a link to the Zoom Meeting Room before the class begins.
