with CB Goodman
Want to uncover what makes you and only you funny? Looking to improve your improv, stand up, sketch, or acting skills? Want to make an outrageous comedy show but don’t know where to begin? Simply FREE YOUR INNER IDIOT! We all have inner idiots and through clown we can begin to figure out who that idiot is and learn to share it with an audience. Being honest, sensitive, and vulnerable are the keys. When you share your idiot with an audience they will go with you anywhere and watch you do anything. Clown techniques help you gain access to your idiot as well as help you gain confidence, expand your imagination, and improve audience connection, all the while laughing your ass off. Through games, exercises, flops, and laughs we will try and discover your idiot. And at the end we learn how to take these techniques and turn them into an unforgettable comedy show that is as unique as you are.
This 3-hour class is great for comedy performers, actors, misfits, or anyone curious.
