× Workshop: Comedic Acting Can be Taught! with Devon Dubnyk

There's no denying that some people have instinctual comedic skills, but if that's not you, YOU CAN LEARN to be a better comedic performer!

SYNOPSIS: We will be undoing the idea that comedy cannot be taught. By exploring comedic timing, scene pacing, and a variety of exercizes we'll turn even the most serious actor into a better comedic performer.

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Devon Dubnyk is a Calgary based Equity actor. He has performed for Theatre Calgary, Vertigo Theatre, Persephone Theatre, Lunchbox Theatre, One Yellow Rabbit, The Shakespeare Company, Quest Theatre, and much more. He has been a sketch comedy writer and performer with the 'late late breakfast show' for the past 5 years. He portrayed Sir Andrew in The Shakespeare Company's 12th Night which won them the Betty award for Best Play. Devon also frequently works as an Artists in Residence for Trickster Theatre; instructing, creating, and performing comedic plays with kids across our province.
