Accents for Improv: Cockney with Sarah Nichols

Oi! Learn Cockney accent in two hours!

Want to add a new accent or two to your skillset?

This workshop will provide you with some basic techniques for control over your voice. You will practice using an accent to initiate and commit to strong character choices.

Join Sarah for a two-hour workshop where she will teach you the basics of how to speak with a Cockney accent—the accent of Michael Caine and David Beckham. You will try them on for fun in some improv scene work!
