WORKSHOPS & TRAINING

Comicus Ltd provides a variety of arts based training and informative lectures that can be delivered to groups or to individuals to support corporate initiatives such as team-building, presentation, writing skills, change management or employee motivation. Our aim is to bring the best out of people, enabling them to achieve outstanding creative results.

Comedy workshops have been used for a multiple of corporate initiatives, such as a fun day experience or as a team building exercise involving presentation and writing skills. Emphasis can be placed on different aspects of the course depending on what the delegates want to achieve. The fun starts with looking at how comedy material is written and the different aspects that go into making a good joke or laugh line. This is rolled out by looking at our own life experiences as an inspiration to create relevant funny material.


SCRIPTWRITING

One of the most effective forms of communication is humour. When people are being entertained they tend to listen and remember more.
