Sam Carrington

Speaker's Biography

Sam was a Sales Controller at ITV when he first began in stand up comedy and has since done a 1,000 gigs all over the world. He noticed early on that parts of his day job at ITV started becoming really easy thanks to all the comedy he was doing. This was the genesis of the work you'll be going through on the 14th and has been enjoyed and rebooked by organisations like Google, Fulham FC, Adobe, Lloyds of London, Allianz Insurance, the AA and many more.

From: 14 Dec 2022, 1 p.m.
To: 14 Dec 2022, 3 p.m.
Location: Lecture Theatre 002, Computational Foundry, Bay Campus

Ever wondered how professional comedians control nerves, remember content and bond with their audiences?

After 14th December you'll wonder no more, as Smirk Experience bring their Communicate Like A Comic workshop to the foundry. The aim isn't to turn you into a stand up comic, instead to arm you with the tools to sell your research to colleagues. Smirk's founder Sam Carrington will take you through what comics do Before, During and After their performance to maximise their effectiveness. These are techniques that comedians take years to master, but Smirk have distilled them so you can learn them in a couple of hours.

ALL WELCOME. Do not miss it!
