Luke McGregor Comedy Masterclass
Saturday 17 March
12noon to 4pm
Richard Sarell, Kyahl Anderson, & Luke McGregor
Come and learn from one of Australia's funniest story-tellers! The Rehearsal Room will host comedian and actor Luke McGregor as he helps us explore what makes us laugh, cry, and everything in between.
"Being able to identify and speak about everyday things we all experience in a comedic way makes for a highly entertaining show, because the audience knows exactly what the comedian is talking about. That's what makes Luke McGregor so side-splitting and hysterical."
Jesse Chaffey, Comedy News
What will be covered in this course?
1) Work with Luke McGregor on a comedy scene

THIS IS FOR YOU IF...
- You don't have the trust in yourself to be funny
- You feel you don't know how to be funny
- You are experienced with comedy looking for a fresh perspective on comedy
- You have little experience in comedy and want to learn more
IF YOU DON’T HAVE THESE SKILLS …
- You have much less chance of standing out from the crowd
- TOTALLY realistic performances could well elude you
- Auditions will be scary rather than fun
- You won’t be in charge of your performance.
Luke McGregor started his stand up comedy career in Tasmania in 2007 when he entered the raw comedy competition after one of the contestants didn’t show up. Since then he has gone from strength to strength, performing sold out seasons at international comedy festivals and developing critically acclaimed content for the ABC.
2017 saw Luke return to stand up with sell-out seasons of his brand new solo show "Almost Fixed It" in Adelaide, Brisbane, and Melbourne, as well as seeing Luke back writing/co-starring in Rosehaven.
Richard first discovered the core values of this acting technique when he was directing drama at the ABC in Melbourne in 1984. Since then he has continued to explore and expand the understandings that evolved from these simple beginnings. He has found these techniques produce high quality performances for drama as well as comedy.
