Join us for ‘Fearless, Funny & Female’

Spymonkey are excited to offer an exciting new webinar with Artistic Director Petra Massey live from Vegas. Available to book NOW!

Fearless, Funny & Female – Petra Massey on comedy

Monday 26th October 4pm – 5.30pm (UK time)

Petra Massey, joint artistic director of Spymonkey since its foundation, joins us from Las Vegas to reflect on pushing the boundaries of physical comedy, good and bad taste, the beautiful and the ugly, correctness and wrongness. How can you be fearlessly funny? How do you build a routine that will have audiences clutching their sides and begging for mercy? Managing Artistic Director, Toby Park, will be hosting and opening out the conversation to include your questions for this ’monarch of physical comedy’ (Melbourne Age)

As before, with the knowledge that most theatre-makers operate on a freelance basis we have set a scale of fees and would ask you to consider which bracket you can reasonable afford. All income made from our training sessions goes directly to covering the costs of keeping Spymonkey going while we’re unable to make work or run our training in person.

£12/ £15 / £20 for the 90min session
