Event description
Learn how to engage with gripping and funny stories, littered with attention-grabbing tension and laughs. For business or pleasure.

About this Event

This is a workshop for newbies, or people who might wish to pump up their public speaking skills and also gigging comedians who want to build or improve upon their storytelling skills. By storytelling, we mean attention-grabbing tales, peppered (or drenched in) funny twists and turns to enthrall and delight your audience.

As things have kept shifting due to Covid, I'll update the "Early Bird" offer nearer the time. If you have any enquiries please email alfie@wearefunnyproject.com

It’s a fun and practical workshop that looks at :

* How we can develop a funny story from an initial idea to a finished bit.

* The techniques used to generate ideas for stories.

* How to develop and edit a story.

* What makes a story work for you and your on stage persona.

* How to deal with various disruptions that happen when performing long form stories in different types of rooms.

* How actually, a heckle or disruption can really add to you story.

If you have a look on comedycv.com you will see that so many acts describe themselves as having a storytelling style. Funny stories are now even more popular than ever and form part of club sets from 5 to 20 mins and longer, as well as hour long solo shows.

There is a good reason for this - audiences love funny stories. After 5 intensive hours you will leave with a head full of ideas. The aim of the day is for you to be able to take events that have happened to you and make them funny to the audience in front of you.

Matt has performed in over 30 countries, received an award nomination for a solo show in Australia, performed 5 solo shows in Edinburgh and have received many 4 and 5 stars reviews (for narrative solo shows). Matt has also received a few bad reviews over the years too, which makes him even more qualified to present a workshop of this nature. He works for most UK comedy promoters and have a reputation as being an interactive, joke based storyteller.

Testimonials

Johnny M

Was a day well spent in the company of the excellent Matt Price. He was generous in sharing his comedic experience and concise and encouraging in his invaluable feedback. He passed on his knowledge regards methods of creating stories and techniques to employ when performing them. Left my head bursting with possibilities. Also it was all really enjoyable too! Highly recommended!

Janet B

As with all the best teachers, Matt was extremely encouraging to every single person and very generous with his energy and time. He's very eloquent too, with the ability to introduce an idea and expand on it in a clear, cogent and often hilarious way with hardly a pause for breath. He's been a comedian for quite some years and gave fascinating glimpses into his past and the way comedy has changed. Obviously very kind too, empathising with all the difficulties we might have experienced, or be experiencing right there on the day. I really enjoyed the course.

Ricky P

Excellent workshop - Matt's personable approach, expertise and ability to coach the participants in the art of crafting and performing comedy storytelling was clear to see. How to adapt or develop material for laughs was covered, tricks of the trade were revealed, onstage personas discussed and nothing was too much trouble for Matt or indeed Alex who managed the day with aplomb! Highly recommended for anyone, regardless of experience or aspirations.

Chris C

Matt was an excellent teacher and demonstrated exactly how to hold the attention of a room. He imparted wisdom which would have taken ages to realise otherwise. He made sure each individual had something to take away from the class, that required thought and work. Having a professional perspective on persona and material was invaluable.

Sam M

This was excellent. Matt Price gave us the advise and tools to help build story-telling into our comedy set. Also helped adapt it to our own styles (character, observational and alternative comedians all present) been a huge help and really well run.
