So you're funny... but are they on the edge of their seats, breathless to see what you'll do next? They could be. You just need to get naked. Naked Comedy will demand your heart, your guts, and all your fluids. We want to see how funny you can be without thinking or trying. Through play, we will explore your unique connection to the audience, the bravery required to be vulnerable, and the gratification that comes with letting go. Expose yourself (metaphorically speaking!) and make people laugh. This workshop is ideal for improvisers, stand-up comedians, actors, circus folk and anyone who wants to be more funny or comfortable in front of others than they currently are.
DEANNA FLEYSHER is a comedy artist, teacher and director. Inspired by clown, bouffon, improv and physical theatre, she cultivates comedy that is interactive and brave. She currently tours with her award-winning solo show Butt Kapinski, and teaches workshops around the world. She is also the director/co-writer of other international touring shows, including Red Bastard and Frank: To Be Frank. She recently relocated to Bellingham, WA where she leads the ongoing Naked Comedy Lab. For more info, visit www.buttkapinski.com, and please check out her blog.
