Award winning musical comedian Kate Lucas is known for her razor sharp and deliciously dark songs. She combines catchy melodies with original lyrics to showcase her playfully bitter musings on life. Audiences have come to expect examples of what not to say and how not to behave from this gloriously talented young comic.

‘A true musical genius’ | Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

In 2014, Kate took home the title for the prestigious Leicester Mercury New Comedian of the Year and her performances since have been met with huge critical acclaim.

Naturally, singers, and a whole range of instruments, are welcomed, the principles taught are universal.

The Workshop will feature:

- A look through examples of musical comedy and varying styles
- Improvisation games to get students thinking on their feet
- Group tasks examining the relationship between style and tone
- Feedback on the group tasks
- A look at some of the different approaches to song-writing
- A final task which can be done in small groups, or individually, will be to write your own song (This can be completely original or if you would prefer can be changing the words to an existing song) and present it to the group.
- Exercises designed to warm up voices and get everyone loosened up
- Feedback on each song.

The "Late Booker" price jumps to £85 from 6pm October 2nd.

Alfie Noakes will happily have a drink with students after the event and answer questions on he London comedy scene, where he feels qualified to answer.
