Be more than funny. Be loved. In this 4-hour workshop, we want your body, your guts, and all your fluids. We want to see how funny you can be without thinking or trying. Through play, we will explore your unique connection to the audience, the bravery required to be vulnerable, and the gratification that comes with letting go. Expose yourself (metaphorically speaking), and make people laugh.

This workshop is very physical. Workout wear only. No shoes, no jeans. You’re lucky you’re allowed to wear clothes.

DEANNA FLEYSHER is a (non-scary) clown, teacher, and director. Trained in Lecoq-style clown, bouffon, improv comedy and physical theater, she created Foreplay, an erotic improv comedy show which ran for a year at the People’s Improv Theater in NY and was featured at the Chicago Improv Festival, and Echo, an improvised rock ballet which ran as a repertory show at NY’s Magnet Theater. She created, produced and starred in Kill Me Loudly: A Clown Noir and The Kapinski Private Eye Academy at the NY Clown Theatre Festival. As Butt Kapinski, she performed at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Galapagos, and many other joints around NY. For the past two years, she has been the director and co-writer of Red Bastard, the internationally-acclaimed bouffon show. A recent transplant to Los Angeles, she is artist-in-residence at Artworks Theatre, where she runs the Naked Comedy Lab.

Due to the popularity of this workshop, we have added a second Saturday workshop.
