Clown Workshop with Viggo Venn (5-day intensive) at The Bill Murray - Angel Comedy

Clown Workshop with Viggo Venn (5-day intensive)

Monday 11th April 2022, 10:00am to 4:00pm - The Bill Murray

5 day workshop to work on becoming a better performer and a deep dive into the world of clown, play and complete stupidity.

In this workshop we are searching for what makes you uniquely funny as a performer.
The first part of the workshop will focus on the performers physicality.
We will work on amping up your stage presence, playfulness and following your comedic impulses.

In the second part of the workshop we approach the land of stupidity.
The clown is an absolute idiot, but always with an immense pleasure to be on stage and a special connection with the audience. Through flops and failure the clown can show their vulnerability to the audience. With sensitivity and care for the audience the clown can share their mistakes - their humanity - and create a special connection with the audience. Building on this special connection the clown can be totally free to fail, be bad and make the audience belly laugh. Like genuinely laugh. A lot.

Suitable for standups, actors, improvisors, clowns acrobats and performers who want to sharpen their funny bone, tune up their stage presence and find the freedom to be stupid, silly, funny and free.

This is a safe place to play, have fun and take chances as an artist.
Expect to be on the floor taking big risks, being utterly stupid, laughing a lot and being harshly criticised by a friendly Norwegian.

No prior experience with clown required.
