I've just completed Session 3 of Maggie's 8 week course.  I've learnt so much already!  It's fascinating to learn how humour is generated through principles such as mirroring, repetition, incongruity and use of space. The stage fighting was hilarious! Our focus on "status" last week highlighted how the skills learnt can be applied in everyday life, not just on stage.  Aren't we always performing in some capacity when in public? The benefits of the course are proving greater than I expected. Sharon
