Overview-

  • This workshop is about the best mindset and attitude to enjoy a good performance.

  • Its not going to be heavy on theory but a fun, energising workshop.

  • to get you into a good mentality to do good improv.

  • Some games, some exercises, some theory and some chatting to agree the best approach.

  • Helping you to remember that improv is not about getting it right/wrong but learning to trust yourself in a playful mentality.

Three elements -

  1. The theory behind the performance

  2. The best attitude to approach this with.

  3. Then some solid points for practice.

I will start by getting you thinking about what you bring to this, where you are comfortable and strong and the best energy to connect with an audience. Then move into physical and mental energy and channel that into your presence on stage.

As it is a short workshop we will touch on the elements of good story and good characters.

We will do this through physical and funny exercises that get you thinking and get everyone relaxed and having the craic.

From there we will lead into some improv games that you may or may not have played before, but bringing your energy into them. So, simple goals, simple expectations, then lets go for it!

Identifying the playful atmosphere to approach improv -
Relaxing and having fun. Working together – its ‘we’ not (you and me and them)
Energy and what you bring to it, telling a good story and developing characters that suit your personality.


About the facilitator: Ciarán McMahon had a wonderful gig in Munich last year where he had the pleasure of performing Improv on stage with some very talented people - He just completed a Train the Trainer Course in 2018, has a Masters Degree in Adult Education started teaching Improv & Stand Up Comedy Workshops over 10 years ago. He has since taught over 500 people stand up and improv comedy. Some do it for fun, some to overcome the fear of public speaking - others get ‘hooked’ and are professional comedians now. Nearly every comedy gig in Dublin has someone who did Ciaran's You Talk Funny workshops, be it stand ups, improvers, MC’s or club runners.

Ciaran regularly performs weekly in Laughter Lines Improv Troupe, Monthly in the Workmans Club for the Splendid Lunatics Comedy Show and that is when he is not MCing or performing stand up or storytelling in various Irish clubs like the Hapenny Bridge Inn - Battle of the Axe, or Anseo, as well as abroad, Munich ( yeay!), Prague and the U.S. of A – he may even be going to Malta, the home of comedy, later this year after he returns from Edinburgh Comedy Festival.

After that it will be time to go for something to eat and possibly one fizzy cool liquid of your choice...
