Being a comedian means being born a clown, being a clown inside.

The real comedian is instinct, talent.

The path that will be faced will not be able to provide an absolute and exhaustive definition of the comedy and the role of the comic, both for the breadth of the genre and the possibilities linked to the comic, and because the rules underlying the mechanism of comedy do not always give a sure result: the theory must be combined with experience.

As that genius Stan Laurel often said: "I would like to tell you what comedy is, but I don't know ”.

One thing, however, can be said: for man, comedy is a very important emotional valve, a positive approach to life. A comedian's goal is to entertain.

During the course will be analyzed the mechanisms and the fundamental dynamics of comedy, the construction of the character, the joke and the drafting of the comic text.

We will work to understand how the best possible result can be achieved by exploiting talent, instinct and humor - which are innate gifts - together with theory and technique.

Specifically, the following points will be addressed:

  • COMICITY

The dynamics and the little tricks that a comedian need to reach the goal: To have fun, to make people laugh.

  • THE COMEDIAN

Being a comedian means being born a clown. The comedian is instinct, talent, you are it in the breath, on the skin.

  • THE WISH TO RISK

Before going on stage we have to remove the negative thoughts, the little voices that tell you “I don't know if it will make you laugh”.

  • THE TERMS OF COMIC COMMUNICATION

The relationship between the comedian, the viewer, the text.

  • LOOKING AT THE WORLD FROM A COMIC POINT OF VIEW

Develop humorous thinking by observing the world from an oblique, anomalous, different point of view.

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF LISTENING
  • THE CHARACTER 

The perspective and the elements needed to build the comic character and the difference between character and monologue.

  • MECHANISMS OF LAUGHTER

"The rule of three", "The expectation and the disregard", The comic conflict.

  • THE CLASH OF CONTEXTS

Transporting a thing or a character into a strange environment.

  • DRAFTING OF THE TEXT

The comic premise and the "split" between comic reality and true reality.

The aim of the course will be to deepen everyone's knowledge on the mechanisms of laughter and to integrate their research path.
