Join us for a stand-up comedy workshop with Arno Quinton on Saturday the 28th of April at 2 pm.

Topics that will be covered are:
-Mic control:
The correct way of handling the mic, how to use it as a prop or to incorporate it into your gags.
Understanding the correct timing for a punchline to hit, how to wait for laughter, creating rhythm in your set.
-Stage presence:
How to carry yourself on stage, which pitfalls to avoid.
-Crowd interaction:
How to work your audience, how to read them, and how to incorporate them into your set. How to know who you're dealing with in your crowd.
-Writing comedy:
How to write jokes, when to write jokes, and how to tie them into your set.
We look at how improv techniques and games can help develop your material and stage persona.
-Bringing it together:
We bring it all together on stage and do a Q&A to understand where we went right and how we can improve where we went wrong.
