VOICE with John Gordillo: Week 1
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, being your funniest, unforced self in front of an audience.
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, explosively-funny and which can take on any topic.
The course is led by JOHN GORDILLO, one of the most respected directors in UK comedy. In recent years, John has directed Josh Widdicombe, Reginald D Hunter, Dylan Moran, Tommy Tiernan, Shappi Khorshandi and Phil Nichol, 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
