Dead Cat have designed these workshops to bring new comedians all the tools they need to succeed. All workshops run by RED REDMOND. Professional Stand-up, founder of Dead Cat Comedy and Manchester Student Comedian of the Year 2011 & 2013.  Red has been performing Stand-up for over 5 years. He has taught Improvised Comedy with international Comedy troupe Comedysportz. Red is also trained in the art of Clowning which he learnt under Philippe Gaulier (a mad French man who taught Sacha Baron Cohen, Helen Bonham Carter, Emma Thompson etc…)
Now Red wants to share his multi-faceted knowledge of Comedy with you…

I booked Red to run a workshop for the Salford University Comedy Society, he committed with the utmost of professionalism and provided a service for the students which was second to none. Red worked on a number of subjects drawing from his own experience which created an excellent atmosphere to craft and develop the skills needed for professional stand up. I was impressed with his dedication to his craft and the skills of his students

Sessions will also be assisted by professional artist, Improviser and Circus Performer SYE WATTS. Sye has taught Clowning at Play Festival 2013 and is a fully fledged member of Comedysportz UK. Sye knows simplicity is the secret to great comedy. Pop down and let us nuture your natural comedic talents.
