Amanda O’Leary  – “Smarty Pants” 

from Vancouver BC

PC Superstore Cooking Room 2nd Floor,

51 Gerry Fitzgerarld Dr, North York

S/W corner of Dufferin & Steeles

 

Amanda O’Leary is a professional clown, magician and motivational speaker. Known for her ability to teach topics in depth, with humour and honesty, to include all people and even to get the shy to try. Amanda tells stories of her own escapades – the good and the not so good learning curve of entertaining. She will bring magic supplies to purchase. Magic is a wonderful prop to wow your audience, to use as an opportunity for fun and creativity. As a former magic shop owner, she knows what works.

Magic in Clowning Lecture

“Knowing nothing about magic, I attended Amanda’s hands on Magic Workshop. I was impressed at how skillfully she taught our inexperienced class, 10 magic tricks.  I was thrilled!  Amanda is a wonderful teacher.  She has patience galore and she has an uncanny ability to make everything fun and understandable. I had an idea for something I wanted to discuss in my upcoming workshop but didn’t know exactly how to do it.  Amanda was brilliant and understood exactly what I was asking. She took my starter idea and helped me find the message I wanted to get across. When I performed the magic trick my participants were amazed but most of all THEY GOT IT!  They saw themselves succeeding. Thank you Amanda!  You took this newbie and showed her how to use magic in my workshops effectively.”

.

Comedy, Creating, Connection and CA$H!

  • More funny (I know! like, that’s possible? And really bad grammar!)
  • More in tune with your audience. (Mmmmmmmm – syncronicity)
  • More fun in everything: your shows, walk arounds, balloon twisting, face painting,
  • More money (mic drop!!!!)

When you connect with people (1 or a million) and can give them what they love in a freaking awesome and professional, funny and generous way – you will need new suspenders because your pockets will be filled with mooooooola! Your clown show toes will be stuffed with tips!

BONUS: You have the confidence to state your price and charge what you are worth not what others say they can afford.

  • This workshop unlocks what makes things funny – including you!
  • Story telling and routines – building a show. Unlock your creativity
  • Whole Body Clowning – Body language, facial expressions, voice, arms and legs
  • Adding “more and more” to your performance. Good “more and more” not ‘I’m here for an hour with 10 minutes of material so I’ll talk slow’
  • Connecting with your audience – the most important aspect of performing and entertaining is connecting with the people in front of you. Heart to heart.
