The CallBack by Jonathan Dickens with Keanan Cantrell

‘Withnail and I meets The Hangover’ The Callback with Keanan Cantrell and Jonathan Dickens The morning after the night before, nursing their hangovers with just a little bit more booze, two actors doing (mostly) their best to break into the industry take a trip down memory lane. Sharing their respective experiences following the drama school they both left ten years earlier, they discuss their lives in the margins of show-business, from auditions, self-tapes and showcases, to being an extra (accessory?) in Tinseltown productions... so close and yet... Bringing to life the people they have met along the way, including the bad (and possibly the worst) agents, as well as many other hopefuls that have generally not been very helpful, it is an honest, poignant and often funny behind-the-scenes look into the lives of struggling actors. A tragi-comedy, this play reflects not only those trying to break into the industry but many of those who have not yet quite figured out their places in the world, but who keep their dreams alive, no matter what. A sensitive tribute to those waiting for The Callback, it will capture the audience’s heart, through laughter and tears.

Sadly, it gets quite midsty in Whitby at times… Bram Stoker’s immortal horror story is given an affectionate lampooning in this physical, riotous comedy. Now, it is truly horrific.

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

Past participants have gone on to win every major comedy award. Perhaps that’s why it’s one of the most highly regarded comedy workshops in Europe. 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.

But perhaps the best reason to do this course is that it will be one of the most satisfying things you do in your life. You will laugh more, you will play more and you will learn more about your creative processes than you ever thought possible .

Improve Your Comedy

Are you eager to discover the better comic who is lurking inside you? Do you need a push to break out of a rut with your comedy routine? 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. The group size will be small so enrol quickly to be sure of a place. This is an opportunity for you to become a better comic. From finding your creative inspiration to a deeper appreciation of the building blocks of jokes and routines, these workshops will help you become a better writer and performer.

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!
