This is a resource for actors, teachers and directors interested in physical comedy - from slapstick pratfalls to the theatre of the absurd. The author believes that the basic physical skills of comedy can be taught to anyone. His 20 years of practical experience - including workshops with Jacques LeCoq, Tony Montanaro, Bill Irwin, Avner Eisenberg, Mark Morris and Ronlin Foreman - have taught him so. Robinson shares what he has learned in this book, providing a thorough explanation of a range of techniques for developing comic timing, writing original material and working with scripts. The book includes numerous hands-on exercises designed to help anyone, regardless of experience, develop their sense of play.
