Comedy Class: Week 4

Week Four

The pressure was on for week four of the comedy class.  We had to come prepared with a talent to share with the class.  Kate had set us this challenge not to prove how good we are at singing, dancing and the like but to get us prepped for performing.

After a somewhat challenging week in my personal life I hadn’t quite got round to preparing for my talent.  Not such a problem as I have little talent to share.  It’s at times like this I wish I could sing a ditty or two.  As was proven when one class mate took to the stage to share her pitch perfect impression of Cher.  Or when another recited an original song with accompaniment on her ukulele.  Or indeed when the retried gymnast in the room did his entire routine whilst in a perfect headstand.  The bar had been set high.

The only talent I do have buried deep down is my ability to do accents.  I decided to take the class on a regional tour of the United Kingdom and share the many sites in various accents and observations.  It seemed to go down ok and I really enjoyed the performance side of it.

The pressure of performance was perhaps a bit much for some as there were three drop outs from class this week.  A shame as we are all getting on so well and enjoying all the task together.  Hopefully they will be back next week.

The comedy class is taught be Kate Smurthwaite and is run by City Academy.
