Whether your getting on stage to present your work to your adoring fans, reading to camera for your YouTube channel or just wanting to get better at public speaking, performing for theatre or just giving a speech, sometimes the hardest thing to do is be funny. Be engaging. Be an amazing public speaker. Do you do the funny voices? Do you do character voices. How long should your pauses be? Are these even the right questions to be asking?

Thankfully, we’re here to help. Theatre Queen Karen Corbett is at Queermance to help us all speak better in public. Or for the public. They’re different, but complimentary skills. Grab yourself a ticket or festival pass, and join us for a one of a kind workshop.
