Calling all aspiring comedians and comedy writers. It’s a serious business being funny, and writing comedy to sound off-the-cuff can take hours of work. Join Maggie Irving to share observations, craft material and even develop performance in a fun and supportive environment. Maggie discovered her anarchic ‘inner clown’ at Plymouth University. Realising that too few women appeared in the clown canon, she researched the female clown for her PhD, and now teaches comedy skills as a modus operandi for breaking down barriers in all aspects of life and work. Numbers limited.
