Expressions of Interest: Rachel Berger Comedy Workshop

The Barn at Rosny Farm

10am - late, 30 Jun - 30 Jul 2021

For Clarence Arts & Events Winter Series 2021, one of Australia’s favourite stand-up comedians, Rachel Berger will be delivering a one day Stand Up Comedy workshop to ten first-time, would-be comedians who will perform their routines to a live audience that very night. Raw comedy indeed!

We all live with the fear of failure so why not bite the bullet and move out of the lounge room and onto the stage. There is no security for the comedian. Anxiety goes with the territory, it’s the cattle prod towards excellence. This is NOT a comedy-writing workshop. But a rare and unique opportunity to draw on Rachel’s thirty years of experience to help you understand your illogical self and what makes YOU funny? In order to be funny, you have to know and trust your comic-self on stage and that’s what this workshop is about, discovering your own funny!

Please Note:

  • Places are limited to 10 people as part of our Winter Series program on Sunday 29 August 2021.
  • Participants must be 18 years + over and must be available from 10am on the day of the event for an all-day workshop followed by a rehearsal and performance that evening. Refreshments will be provided. The workshop is funded by Clarence Arts & Events and successful applicants will participate for free.



Applications have been extended to 30 July 2021, midnight

Rachel is one of Australia’s favourite stand-up comedians and a woman of remarkably diversified talents. In addition to playing the xylophone and carving avocado pips into small Buddhas she’s recently stopped feeling guilty. There are no cows too sacred for this Berger. Rachel has worked variously as a comedian, broadcaster, novelist, columnist, agitator and television entertainer. She’s taken four solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival and her dynamic presence and engagingly sharp observations have made her an extremely popular performer both live and on television, across Australia and overseas.

Rachel creates a safe environment for discussion and the opportunity for participants to work on their routines (max 5 minutes), find their own voice, confidence and authentic delivery, to perform in front of an audience later that evening.



This event is part of the Rosny Farm Winter Series, 19 – 29 August 2021, showcasing Tasmania’s best performance acts. For more information & events part of the series click here: Winter Series
