The Bill Murray : Training, Islington, United Kingdom
We go to comedy to laugh. But we connect with comedians because of who they
are in between the jokes. We forget the ones who sound like stand-ups and
remember the ones who sound like themselves.
VOICE aims to find and refine your authentic onstage persona, The point is
to be your funniest, unforced self in front of an audience and find ways of
making jokes that are unique to you.
VOICE shows you how to find original premises and trains of thought, that
will create a distinct comic universe, Finding the right set-up is more
important than writing a good punchline to a joke anyone could tell. It’s a
different way of working.
VOICE is about building a comic persona that is full-blooded and can go
anywhere - which ultimately leads to better and more explosively funny
The course is led by JOHN GORDILLO, one of the most respected directors in
UK comedy. John is currently directing shows for Tommy Tiernan, Shappi
Khorshandi and Phil Nichol. In recent years, John has directed Josh
Widdicombe, Reginald D Hunter, Dylan Moran, Mark Steel, Jason Manford,
Seann Walsh, Sean Lock, Scott Capurro and Michael Mcintyre.
“There's a case to be made that John Gordillo is one of the key shapers of
our modern comedy landscape. His may not be a widely recognised name, but
as a writer, director and benevolent svengali he's helped to set many a
major stand-up star on the road to greatness.” THE GUARDIAN
