Whatever you decide his gift for comedy is undeniable and his ‘psychic’ powers are unbelievable! “Binns has either gone native or so deeply ironic that he’s lost touch with reality. I can only assume he sells more tickets if he claims to be the real deal. In this post-truth ‘end of days’ era we’re living in, why not? Best of luck to him.” - Evening Mail

Logan takes a special pride in helping you unlock your own unique comic voice. He will encourage you to be the best comedian you can possibly be. This ten week gives you a chance to go deeper into the art and craft of making people laugh.

Are you looking for support to upgrade your material and your style? Do you want to develop a longer set or get started on your 2020 show? Spend five afternoons with Logan Murray and a small group of other gigging comedians, and discover new ways to unlock latent creative potential, enhance existing material and unleash fresh ideas.

Be A Better MC Workshop

Perhaps the most important person on a comedy bill is the compere. A weak MC can destroy an otherwise strong line up - and a good MC can make a mediocre night great! A good comic isn't always a good compere, but a good compere usually becomes a brilliant comic. There is no better way to turbo- charge your development as a comedian! Spend the three days with Logan Murray as he gives you the benefit of his knowledge of over two decades of MC'ing events around the World. From dealing with 3,000 boisterous and/or hungover people at the Glastonbury Festival Comedy Tent to most of the major clubs in London, let him share with you the tricks he's discovered (and warn you about the mistakes he's made!). The sessions will be mainly taken up with a series of practical exercises and games designed to get you to interact better with crowds. It's all about spontaneity, interaction, listening to your audience and charming the pants off them. Compering is a wonderful, life-long skill in which there is always something new to learn - but why not hit the ground running by picking up a few tips and techniques that might speed up the process? Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment!

An Evening Without Kate Bush

The chaotic cabaret cult, AN EVENING WITHOUT KATE BUSH is here! Enter Strange Phenomena, howl with the The Hounds Of Love and dance on the moors with Wuthering Heights. Kate's not there, but you are. From the makers of ‘Julie Madly Deeply’. But completely different. Performer Sarah-Louise Young (Cabaret Whore, The Showstoppers, La Soiree) has teamed up with director Russell Lucas (Warped at VAULT Festival) to explore the music and mythology of one of the most influential voices in British music. From releasing ‘Wuthering Heights’ at the age of 19 to selling out the Hammersmith Apollo nearly forty years later, Bush has always surprised and confounded her critics. Through it all her fans have stayed strong. Young invites you to celebrate her songs with this unique and mind-blowing show. Twitter: @BushWithout Reviews for their previous show, Julie Madly Deeply: ‘A tour de force.’ - ★★★★ Time Out ‘Even your critic found herself, unprecedentedly, singing along. My cheeks hurt with smiling.’ - ★★★★ Daily Telegraph ‘This is an evening that ends in triumph, not in tears.’ - ★★★★ The Times ‘Young is a versatile performer with a terrific sense of comedy’ - ★★★★ WhatsOnStage
