The Oban Times - - News - For all en­quiries or fur­ther de­tails, con­tact Peter Ur­peth, Di­rec­tor ( Writ­ing and Pub­lish­ing) Emer­gents / XPONorth at: pe­terurpeth@xponorth.net

XPONorth (Writ­ing and Pub­lish­ing) will run a new one- day com­edy writ­ing work­shop with lead­ing com­edy coach Lo­gan Mur­ray – but places are lim­ited to just six lucky par­tic­i­pants.

De­liv­er­ing what is widely re­garded as the most suc­cess­ful com­edy course in Europe, Mur­ray has taught Greg Davies, Andi Osho, Rhod Gil­bert, Josh Wid­de­combe, Diane Mor­gan, Mar­cel Le­cont and Ka­van No­vak.

Com­edy, like any other art form, is a craft – there are tips and tech­niques to be learned.

Peter Ur­peth, Di­rec­tor ( Writ­ing and Pub­lish­ing), XPONorth said: ‘ Com­edy is of­ten con­sid­ered to be one of the hard­est skills for writ­ers work­ing in any genre or form to mas­ter.

‘But com­edy is a craft that has de­vel­oped with forms and struc­tures that can be un­der­stood and re­ally en­able writ­ers and per­form­ers to de­velop their work.’

The work­shop takes place in a con­trolled and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment and is suit­able for writ­ers (and writer/per­form­ers, in­clud­ing stand-up) seek­ing to ad­vance their com­edy writ­ing and ideas.

From find­ing your cre­ative in­spi­ra­tion to learn­ing the build­ing blocks of jokes, this work­shop will help you dis­cover your unique comic voice.

Mur­ray’s work­shop, Un­lock your in­ner id­iot for fun and

profit!, takes place at Eden Court The­atre, In­ver­ness, on Thurs­day April 20.

Places are lim­ited and open only to ap­pli­cants liv­ing in the High­lands and Is­lands. Fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance may be avail­able for ap­pli­cants from the is­lands.
