Logan's Courses have been running for over a decade now and the best advertisement for them are the people who've done it:
Greg Davies, Rhod Gilbert, Josh Widdecombe, Andi Osho, Luisa Omielan, Diane Morgan, Joe Wilkinson and many award winning comics have been taught by Logan. Although, many people have also signed up because they've heard it is just a great experience.
All Stand Up, Writing and Technique courses in 2018 SOLD OUT very quickly - so early booking is always recommended.
FINDING THE JOKE. A Comedy Writing Workshop 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.
