Two TVO faces will be appearing tomorrow at LOCO’s series of talks about challenging comedy. Barunka O’Shaughnessy and Jacqueline Wright are two of the speakers at the event which is taking place at Hackney Attic, Hackney Picturehouse in London.
Co-hotsed by LOCO and Underwire Film Festival, Challenging Comedy offers a packed afternoon of discussions, revelations, trade secrets and live workshops which explore the ways in which women writer-performers challenge conventional ways of looking at others, and of presenting themselves.
The session runs from midday tomorrow – so get your skates on! – until 5pm (with drinks afterwards) and tickets are £25, which includes lunch.
The full list of guest speakers includes:
Filmmaker Becky Brand (SUPERSTAR ROLE MODEL, THE CAMPAIGNER)
Costumer designer Claire Finlay (NIGHTY NIGHT, GAVIN & STACEY, HIM & HER)
2013 Fringe First award winner Bryony Kimmings (SUPERSTAR ROLE MODEL, SEX IDIOT, 7 DAY DRUNK).
Writer/Performer Barunka O’Shaughnessy (SCHOOL OF COMEDY, HUNDERBY, BEEHIVE)
Writer/Performer/Producer Poppy Roe (THIS WAY OUT)
Director Jacqueline Wright (OUT OF WATER, LIFESPAM, STIFFY).
