Naked Comedy Lab - Workshops in hilarious vulnerability.
You're funny, but are they on the edge of their seats? Are they breathless to see what crazy thing you do next? They could be. You just need to strip down and get naked.
Naked Comedy demands your body, your guts, and all your fluids. We want to see how funny you can be without thinking or trying. Through play, we will explore your unique connection to the audience, the bravery required to be vulnerable, and the gratification that comes with letting go. Expose yourself (metaphorically speaking), and make people laugh.
This work is very physical. Workout wear only. No shoes, no jeans. You're lucky you're allowed to
DEADLINE FOR SIGN-UP IS TUESDAY AUGUST 6.

Deanna is like a sculptor. She molds your talents, quirks and insecurities into a character you can play through.
Deanna Fleysher's Naked Comedy workshop focuses a powerful lens on the performer's inner and outer world, the audience's emotional response, and the strange, often unspoken interplay between them. She is a tough, smart, inspiring teacher.
Deanna is uncanny at drawing genuineness and comedy out of every single person. The class is engaging from beginning to end, and her way of explaining the work is wonderfully precise and effective.
Deanna'a workshop allowed me to see the translucent naked shining vulnerability of the clown in myself and in all of us. I thought it would be fun. It turned out to be profound.
