As you may or may not know I'm expecting a baby at the moment and in the final couple of months of pregnancy (finding increasing difficult to perform) I decided to follow one of my dreams of running the kinda of course I wanted when i started out and so I've got into working with a group of relative "newbies" to comedy on structuring their Edinburgh shows, my main focus is on discovering their voices and finding the funny in a personal story.
I have got together with some of the current big hitters of comedy; Richard Gadd and John Kearns who have both created shows along a similar vein and they taught alongside me on trying to get these students funny, poignant and of course with something too say. Also included in the course is Monkey Toast Improv with a workshop on creating work through Improvisation.
I ran the workshop on Sunday afternoons at Camden Head, Camden for 10 wks culminating in a one off showing of up to 10mins each, of what i think is really interesting and unique material
The showing will at 6pm (doors 5.45pm) on Sunday 19th March at Camden Head over by 8pm then please hang around for drink..
The list of New Comedians are as follows:
