You may imagine that you are never dishonest or untruthful (unlike others of course). But maintaining this self-deception on stage will only hamper your ability to be funny. Because obvious, playful and creative liars make audiences laugh, whatever their age… and we are in fact, all well practiced in the art of lying!

Clowns have to tell tall tales more often than most because they don’t take into account the consequences of their words, actions or behaviour. Without apparent difficulty, they find themselves in all kinds of awkward situations, where their only way out is to resort to pretense or fabrication. Of course, the clown’s futile attempts to hide their tracks are extremely comical, largely due to their incredible inventiveness.

In this Clown Workshop, we will pay tribute to our enormous capacity to tell fabulous fibs and to the long-standing clown tradition of using blatant dishonesty to provoke the audience’s laughter. We’ll go over the skills that the conspicuous comic liar must master: the body language, emotional contortion, rhythms, pauses and timing. And we’ll explore how to use them to maximize the comedy. We’ll also cover the five seasoned tactics that clowns use to avoid being punished when the inevitable happens… when someone confronts them with their lies and demands the truth.
