Tips For Actors

Fergus Craig

PaperBack (01 Oct 2016)

The perfect humorous gift for students, actors and anyone with an interest in theatre.

In the most important theatrical book of this or any other decade, twitter sensation @tips4actors gives you all the advice you need to take your acting to the next level. How to upstage your fellow cast members, what to wear on the first day of rehearsals, where to go for a poo in London’s glamorous West End - it’s all covered in here! Includes advice such as...

‘Never read the script. Would your character read it? No, of course not. For them the script doesn’t exist’ and ‘When having sex with a casting director, show off your acting by faking an orgasm’.

This is a hilarious parody which demands to be read.

'A very, very funny book' Chris O'Dowd

‘What sort of person would be an actor? What kind of tragic empty husk of a human being would rely on pretending to be someone they’re not for the amusement of strangers? Find out inside!' Al Murray
'If only I had read this when I was 19 I could have saved myself 3 years at RADA!'  David Morrissey
'This book will replace Stanislavki's An Actor Prepares' Jeff Daniels
'anyone following his dicta word for word would end up at the very least unemployed, possibly with a few teeth missing and for those who get to the end of the book, imprisoned for life... The subject matter is certainly varied including chapters on subjects such as dealing with your agent, animal work, social media presence, poo guide, nudity, what actors spend their money on and corpsing tips... To give one example, “if you don’t warm up before a performance there is a 40% chance that you will die”... All in all, this is a light read that will have some in stitches.'
