Stand-up Comedy Workshop


Session 1

Schoolkid Skill

Exercise pertaining to Dynamics.

Schoolkid Skill

The main exercise of the opening session must therefore involve interaction between performer and audience. To this end and to keep it playful we open the workshop with ‘Teach a Schoolkid Skill’; Each student is given two minutes to teach some simple physical trick probably learned in the playground - moon walking, underarm farting, finger tricks or if you prefer, a tongue twister, or something useful like the correct translation of a greeting in your local, regional, accent or native tongue, perhaps even the correct pronunciation of your name.
