Deanna Fleysher and Asaf Ronen are combining forces for the first time ever for an intensive that will help feed clowning technique more directly into improvisational work. Develop characters more immediately and more with vulnerability and personal idiocy. Simplify your improv to those nuggets that will bring you the most joy and share that with those playing with you.

Students will benefit from diagnostics delivered by two powerhouse teachers steeped in two different worlds of experience.

This workshop is limited to 14 students. Students must take Naked Comedy: Level One (offered on Monday, May 26th) before taking this class.

DEANNA FLEYSHER is a clown, teacher, and director. Trained in Lecoq-style clown, bouffon, improv comedy and physical theater, she created Foreplay, an erotic improv comedy show which ran for a year at the People’s Improv Theater in NY and was featured at the Chicago Improv Festival, and Echo, an improvised rock ballet which ran as a repertory show at NY’s Magnet Theater. She created, produced and starred in Kill Me Loudly: A Clown Noir and The Kapinski Private Eye Academy at the NY Clown Theatre Festival. As her alter ego Butt Kapinski, she has performed at Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Galapagos, and many other joints around NY, as well as the Out of Bounds Festival in Austin and the Montreal Fringe Festival. For the past two years, she has been the director and co-writer of Red Bastard, the internationally-acclaimed bouffon show. She currently leads Naked Comedy labs in Los Angeles.

ASAF RONEN is the creator and Editor-in-Chief of YESand.com, a website devoted to improvisation, and is the author of Directing Improv: Show the Way By Getting Out of the Way. He has been involved in improv since 1990, starting in college and working with Theatresports, ComedySportz and directing his own longform improv troupe, Hiatus, where he helped create original formats.

Asaf has taught improvisation in Canada, Great Britain, Norway and in twenty-two of The United States. His directing credits include the all-girl group goga, the improvised comic book adventure show Ka-Baam!!, and Death in the City, a dramatic longform improv piece, at the NY Fringe Festival. He was a producer on Trust Us, This Is All Made Up, a documentary on legendary improvisers TJ & Dave that had its world premiere at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival and was a writer on the feature film, Days of Delusion.

I'm very excited to be team teaching with this incredibly talented woman. Looking to fill up the remaining few slots.

Contact me if you're on the fence.
