Character Class with Cameron Macleod
Wed, 11 January 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM PST
6-8 PM Wednesdays starting January 11- Feb 22nd. Final Performance March 9th.
If you’re feeling like you always play the same characters on stage, or have a few tried and true archetypes and want to branch out to something new and exciting but aren’t sure how, this workshop is for you. The one and only Cameron MacLeod will help you find the hilarity in all of your characters, whether they be improvised or written. Focusing on both physicality, voice and writing, you will venture out of your comfort zone and learn the secrets behind finding strong grounded characters, entertaining improvised monologues, switching between playing several characters in the same scene, and putting ideas to paper with a solo sketch character writing workshop.

He is an award winning actor, Leo nominated writer, and has produced and curated Comedy programming for JFL Northwest and Olio Festival. He was the executive producer and head writer for the Classic Comedy Roast of Mayor Gregor Robertson and was a member of the team that brought you ShitHarperDid.com as well as many other web series, short films and commercials. He started his Improv career in high school, before moving into the training programs of VTSL and Instant Theatre, where he became a member of the main stage cast and touring company for several years.

Cameron has produced and hosted The HERO SHOW, Vancouver’s longest running solo sketch comedy show, for the past 9 years where he has been happy to offer comedians a platform to try out new, strange, character based ideas resulting in one of Vancouver’s favourite underground alternative comedy shows that at times will blur the line between comedy and performance art. A theatre graduate himself, he loves to push the boundaries of what live comedy can be.
