Less Theory, More Funny

Conference Workshop

The funny bone is a myth but comedy muscles are real, so let’s exercise them. Working on the premise that nothing kills a joke like explaining a joke, this session will try to focus more on the doing than the pondering. Yes, we will look at the root of what makes something funny, ways of generating ideas, discovering a comedic perspective and also looking at one formula to creating a comedic character. But as much as possible, this will be a session to explore and hopefully share your humour in a safe, supportive environment. We will put the “ny” back in “funny!” … or something to that effect.
