Father Ted actor Ben Keaton is joining the legendary comedian Chris Lynam to teach a 3 day workshop in Clown on October 7th, 8th and 9th.

Keaton is best known as Father Austin Purcell, ‘the most boring priest in the world’ according to Ted. His character delivered one classic line after another in the episode Think Fast Father Ted in the second series. ‘I knew a woman once but she died soon afterwards’ can only be matched by his hysterical interest in humming noises. He got an Olivier Nomination for playing Groucho Marx in the West End too so he knows his onions.

Chris Lynam started as a street performer and has appeared on stage and screen across the world for over 4 decades. He is brilliant and outrageous in equal measure. Their combined experience will bring real insights into the mechanics of comedy. Definitely, an event not to be missed.
