Theatre

Darren Gilshenan – 3 Day Comedy Masterclass – Series 4

A three day comedy master class for working professional actors.

Teacher: Darren Gilshenan

The HubStudio is very excited to work with Logie nominated Darren Gilshenan on this three-day Comedy Masterclass. Darren is one of the country’s most successful and award winning (Helpmann, Greenroom,) comedy performers. The workshop will look at all the aspects of great comedic acting in an intensive and professional series.

You don’t need funny bones to get a laugh. This three-day course explores the hidden tools that make comedy work.

  • Though improvisation the class will delve into the mechanics of: contrast, extension, exaggeration, obsession, oblivion, strategy, rhythm, and timing.
  • Next the class will apply these principles to scripts.
  • The series will demystify the art of comedy acting and give you practical tools to call on to generate laughter.

Come join us!
