THE NAKED COMEDY INTENSIVE WORKSHOP (fully clothed) with Deanna Fleysher
Be more than funny. Be loved.
Saturday 1st June 2019, 10am-4pm
Sunday 2nd June 2019, 10am-4pm
Naked Comedy will demand your heart, your guts, and all your fluids. We will see how funny you can be without thinking or trying. We will learn about your unique connection to the audience. We will see the bravery required for you to really be vulnerable. We will witness 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 your audience.
Personalized feedback (and plenty of it).
Discovery and exploration of your "sweet spots": unique ways that you move/be (emotional/physical states) that your audience especially enjoys.
More understanding of what "stage magnetism" means for you, and how to really harness your performative power.
The beginnings of new characters and sketches.
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 magnetic, funny or comfortable in front of others than they currently are.
What Participants Have Said:
"Deanna is like a sculptor. She molds your talents, quirks and insecurities into a character you can play through" Estela
"Deanna creates an incredible environment of trust and honesty which 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
"Deanna is uncanny at drawing genuineness and comedy out of every single person" Andy
"I am deeply impressed with Deanna’s ability to balance professionalism and organized classes with complete fluidity and a go-with-the flow atmosphere necessary for such intimate and personal explorational work. I just can’t say enough good things. She has an uncanny ability to support each individual’s personal work and journey in whatever way they need in the moment." Paul
