Hilary Chaplain’s Physical Comedy Intensive in NY (April 2,3)

Hilary Chaplain’s Physical Comedy Intensive Apr 2-3

Hilary Chaplain

 What makes it funny? What makes it repeatable? How do we approach writing the funny?

These are great questions that any clown should be able to answer about their work. (And even if you can’t answer these questions, you should at the very least be asking them.) Hilary Chaplain will teach another of her intensives that will help you answer these questions about your own work.

I’ve featured Hilary on Clownlink before, and I’m still a big fan of her work.  I have never taken a class with her directly, but I can only imagine she’d be a great teacher.
Here’s a quote from somebody who has taken a workshop and loved it:
Hillary Chaplain“Hilary Chaplain is a brilliant teacher and performer, and her physical comedy class is AWESOME. She creates a friendly, fun, and hard working environment for people at many different levels of experience. If you want to grow as a physical performer and have your mind/body expanded in the process, run (or prat fall) there as soon as you can!”
Cathy Rose Salit,
CEO and co-founder Performance of a Lifetime
Hilary tours with her award-winning clown show, A Life In Her Day and performs in variety shows worldwide. (She recently was one of the headliners of the Suess show I featured.)
She is a founding member of The NY Goofs and appeared on Broadway in George C. Wolfe’s The Tempest with Patrick Stewart. Hilary is recognized as one of America’s foremost professional physical comediennes performing throughout North and South America and Europe. Revealing the humor in everyday life, she has been called “ferociously talented”.
Here’s a sample of Hilary performing one of her pieces for a German audience:

 I am pretty sure you will enjoy her class.  (And if you take it, and want to review it in a smart and intelligent way, write up your review and I will publish it as a guest blog!)
