Deanna Fleysher: Naked Comedy
Saturday, September 1st
12:00 pm - 4:30 pm at The New MovementBuy Tickets
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.
