FIND YOUR COMEDY VOICE

VOICE aims to find and refine your authentic onstage persona, being your funniest, unforced self in front of an audience. VOICE is about building a comic persona that is full-blooded, explosively-funny and which can take on any topic. The course is led by John Gordillo “one of the key shapers of our modern comedy landscape” – The Guardian., one of the most respected directors in UK comedy.
