The Art of the MC

with Shep Huntly

“What a great workshop by an incredibly knowledgeable, personable and encouraging teacher. The pearls of wisdom were presented in easily processed bite sized chunks which we all got a chance to test out in front of our peers. I left on a high, with a vastly increased sense of understanding and confidence” Chloe King, Perth

Shep has been on stage for more than 25 years. He has spent thousands of hours in front of crowds. Shep had a casual affinity with his audience and has become the most sought after MC in the circus, cabaret and burlesque worlds.. In this course he will share secrets that will make you a better public speaker/event host/MC. This masterclass is perfect for beginners to get a start or mid career artists to brush up on their skills or professionals to gain new insights.

An insightful evening with a master craftsmen and an MC I’ve admired for years – left me inspired and knowing what I need to work on to improve my presence and delivery. I would recommend to both professional performers and volunteer event organisers alike. Well worth the 1.5 hour drive from up the coast. Thanks Shep!” Lucy Frost Sydney.
