Contemporary Clowning Workshop

This clowning workshop aims to:

  • Introduce you to concepts behind clowning – playful incongruity; silliness; spontaneous/crafted comedy; exaggeration and you
  • Optimise your physical/vocal/visual humour
  • Build confidence to be seen, engage actively and humorously with others
  • Provide space to play/generate material from your stories
  • Play with rhythm, size and…timing
  • Get you thinking outside-the-box to generate new concepts, and brainstorm solutions to problems

Giving yourself permission to respond without fear of failure, can in fact become a springboard to success – and life feels a lot less pressured. Clowning opens the mind to different ways of seeing/being, because clowning is an art form; clowning is a verb and has the potential to change people’s perceptions about themselves.

Dr Maggie Irving guides you to develop your own style.


Dr Maggie Irving is a lecturer, writer, performer and researcher. PhD: The Female Clown Plymouth University. Lectured in comedy at, Winchester University. Runs various workshops from: stand-up, physical comedy, contemporary clowning, and public speaking in the South West.
