Activities at The Grange

Comedy & Creativity with Logan Murray

Mon 19 - Fri 23 Jul 2021

‘All creativity comes out of play’ – Wynnicott

‘So let’s PLAY! – Logan 

Spend a few days in a supportive environment as we explore comedy grammar, joke theory, performance styles and unlock your own unique comic voice.

If you ever wanted to dip your toe into the waters of comedy writing storytelling, parody, satire or monologue, then why not come along and see what your brain can come up with when you least expect it…

Become a better communicator.

Re-discover how easy it is to make other people laugh.

Discover how liberating and creatively fulfilling living in a comic world can be.

The sessions will break down into three basic areas:

  1. Performance exercises designed at encouraging spontaneity, creativity and developing your own comic style. 
  2. Writing games and homework, with group feedback and tutor led suggestions to help you build up a sense of comedic grammar and hone up your writing skills. 
  3. Finessing and polishing the stuff generated earlier in the week. 

Unlock your inner fool and laugh, learn and spontaneously perform funny material. Learn tips and tools to take that sensibility forward into the rest of your life.

Work with the man who taught Greg Davies, Andi Osho, Rhod Gilbert, Josh Widdecombe, Diane Morgan, Joe Wilkinson, Anna Crilley and Kavan Novak.

Life-affirming, laughter inducing and extremely creative.

About Logan Murray

Logan Murray is a working comic and award winning director, author of ‘Teach Yourself Stand Up Comedy’, and script consultant for the BBC.

He has recently run a series of writing workshops for the Radio Four Comedy Department. He teaches all over the world the Art and Craft of Comedy as far west as Colorado and as far east as Shanghai.

Logan has taught many of the comedians, comedy actors and script writers who have appeared on TV and Radio over the past fifteen years, but is far too modest to boast about it here. There is, however, a list of past alumni on his website…

His courses offer a unique opportunity to find out what a comedian’s mindset is like and explore his belief that Comedy really is a life skill!

What people say about Logan and his courses:

I highly recommend his course for anyone who wants to have a great laugh and break from the stress of their normal lives. I have also found the comedian within me.

I felt in a safe space and had a lot of fun playing games, laughing and being creative.

It was a very enjoyable few days, much needed in the present circumstances. You did feel part of a community.

Comedy writing - a hilarious experience brilliantly delivered by Logan.

Such a relaxing and enjoyable stay. What a restorative week.
