Find Your Funny With Marny Godden

Come and explore what makes you funny in this workshop hosted by Marny Godden.

This workshop isn’t about putting on face paint, big floppy shoes and joining the circus. Neither is it about crafting witty punchlines and clever ideas. This is about exploring what it is that makes you uniquely funny, from the inside out.

We may be relying on what we think is funny about us but getting no laughs. Through clowning we come to realise that what’s funny about us comes out of the moment, not from any preconceived ideas.

Sometimes we have an impulse to say or do something but a little voice inside our head stops us. “Don’t do that, you’ll look stupid.” But in doing so we lose our childlike sense of play. Clowning is the antidote to this. You’ll be encouraged to follow your impulses and embrace being as stupid as possible! This is where you lose yourself and find yourself… and have fun in the process.

In this workshop you’ll be guided through a series of fun games and exercises using your body, voice and imagination. They are all designed toΒ  unlock your natural ability to make people laugh.

There is no one like you. Only you hold the key to what is funny about you and I’m here to help you find it.

My name’s Marny. I’ve been making comedic theatre for the past 10 years. I truly believe the power clowning has to bring creativity, joy and confidence to people’s lives. I love sharing the gift of clowning with people who are curious to explore it – from total beginners to professional performers and everyone in between.

“Marny created such a warm and supportive atmosphere in the room, I felt totally at ease”

β€œMarny is gloriously wonderfully ridiculously herself. Her imagination is bigger than anything I can possibly imagine”

“Marny has a rare gift of being able to reconnect us with the divine, abandoning all pretence and letting the natural energy flow through us in the most beautiful, hilarious way. She’s brilliant at gently taking us out of our heads, away from our egos, and back to silly.”
