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!

He’s entertained and amazed sceptics and believers alike on his own BBC Radio 2 series ‘Ian D Montfort is: Unbelievable’ and his critically acclaimed BBC 1 Friday night series Hospital People. During this time Tom claims to have discovered a genuine ‘psychic’ ability and now performs as The ‘Psychic’ Comedium. In his performances Tom clearly makes jaw dropping revelations about his audience but is he gifted or is he deluded or is he just full of shit? 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
