Bristol Longform Comedy Workshop: The Pretty Flower

The Pretty Flower Intensive

Pretty Flower is an improv form that can be loosely described as a “Monoscene with tags”, combining the fun of exploring weird worlds with grounded group scenes full of character games.

This workshop will be done in two halves; firstly we’ll cover the individual mechanics of the form – How do you do a good base monoscene? What makes a satisfying tag run?
In the second half we put it all together, discussing how the tags and monoscene influence each other and drilling the form while giving personalized feedback.

All attendees will receive one (1) freshly picked flower at the start of the workshop.

Instructors: John Gallagher Portero & John Mcinnes

This intensive is capped at 12 attendees.


This event is part of BRISTOL FRINGE FESTIVAL

To see what’s coming up visit The Bristol Fringe Facebook page:

Bristol Fringe Festival is launching its pilot year! Throughout July multiple venues across the city have come together to host a series of comedy, burlesque, theatre, performing arts and live music events, to showcase the incredible talent within the South West.

The aim is to bring Edinburgh Fringe Festival closer to home, allowing up and coming performers an opportunity to test out new material, giving the South West a platform for local talent and increasing tourism and trade to the city. We plan to do this every year, reaching out to more venues and more performers. July is a particularly challenging time for small venues and bars. Bristol Fringe Festival aims to get seats filled and pints in hands! All events are affordable or free!

Sponsored by Bristol City Centre BID, the British Association of Restaurants, Bars and Independents (Bristol), Cloak and Dagger and Loud and Funny CIC have been busy coordinating a program of events.

Expect stand up comedians, magic, family comedy shows, dance workshops, drag events and awesome bands.


This event takes place downstairs in the “Carousel” , for information on accessibility please email
