TRAINING
Naked Comedy (Fully Clothed) Nov 17-18
Posted November 2, 2018
Be more than funny. Be loved.

Naked Comedy (fully clothed) 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. In this intensive, expect the following:

  • A deeper connection to and understanding of the audience.
  • Personalized feedback (and plenty of it).
  • Discovery and exploration of your "sweet spots": unique ways that you move/are (emotional/physical states) that the audience especially enjoys.
  • More understanding of what "stage presence" means for you and how to really harness your performative power.
  • More wildness, more bravery, more vulnerability.
  • Laughing a lot.

This workshop is ideal for improvisers, clowns/bouffons, stand-up comedians, actors, and anyone who wants to be more funny or comfortable in front of others than they currently are.

Class limited to 16 students.

Teacher: Deanna Fleysher

Testimonials from past students:

"Deanna is like a sculptor. She molds your talents, quirks and insecurities into a character you can play through." –Estela G., Los Angles

"Deanna creates an incredible environment of trust and honesty that allows you to really go there, to the depths, the weird, dark, and zany places. She has a great eye and won't let you hide or foster old patterns. Sometimes I feel like I'm a child in front of my siblings, free to go wild." –Krista H., Los Angeles

"Deanna is uncanny at drawing genuineness and comedy out of every single person." –Andy C., Austin

"I thought it would be fun. It turned out to be profound." –Content K., London
