This course will explore film comedy from Silent Film era to present day sitcoms and web series. Participants will work in pairs reading, rehearsing, filming and then watching on video a comedy scene of their choice. Different comedy styles will be discussed, from the madcap to British wry humour, and there will be a look at a handful of the comic geniuses on film to see exactly how it’s done. In her own words – “Everyone’s idea of comedy is different. That’s what makes this class so exciting. You think you’re not funny?You will be after this experience!”
