If you are passionate about comedy and interested in developing your skills, then
this weekend workshop is for you. Renowned Producer and Director Dr Paulette
Randall MBE will give students a unique opportunity to enhance their comedy acting
skills in front of the camera.
"We will talk about different styles of comedy performing, discuss auditioning,
devising, directing and producing comedy shows and how best to develop
confidence in your comedy style to maximise your potential."
Paulette Randall (Desmonds , Little Miss Jocelyn, Funny Black Shorts, Lenny Henry)
was the Associate Director for the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics

Through a variety of practical activities participants will explore:
• What makes people laugh/ Physical comedy
• Interpretation of scripts
• How casting works
• Difference between Live & Pre-recorded
• Working in a studio environment
In front of the camera and under heated lights at The Comedy School Studios
course, members will have the opportunity to work on a variety of filmed comedy
scenes in the group which you will record and then watch back. The emphasis is on
learning techniques that will aid you in front of a camera and help you not to be
intimidated by the studio.
