A Comedy Writing Weekend based workshop.
FINDING THE JOKE. A Comedy Writing Class in London
‘There is no such thing as a bad joke, just an underdeveloped joke’
Participants will be encouraged to use the techniques they learn in any medium they choose: stand up, sketch writing, sit com scenes, character monologue, even comic book writing, if they wish.
The FIVE 4 hour workshops will cover the basics of comic grammar , including afterthought, attitude, parody, juxtaposition, misunderstanding for comic effect, saying one thing but revealing another and – perhaps most importantly – how to mine one subject for many different comic ideas.
Along the way, we will look at various theories of comedy and how we can utilise them, including: Darwinian theory, Henri Bergson’s ideas, Freudian Joke models and Koestler’s theory of creativity.
Through writing games and homework, with group feedback and tutor led suggestions, you will learn how best to hone up your writing skills and how to polish up a script.
By the end of the workshops, you will have a method for crafting comedy in most formats and a clear understanding on how to make a good idea better.
You will also laugh loads.
