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.

ADVENTURES IN COMEDY WRITING ON THE ISLE OF SKYROS, GREECE
Comedy, like any other art, is a craft. There are tips and techniques to be learnt. Simply put, if you can understand comedy grammar then unlocking the funny ideas becomes easier. From finding your creative inspiration to learning the building blocks of humour, this workshop will help you discover your unique comic voice.
Although a writing course, there would be some non-writing exercises designed to encourage the participant’s creativity. There would also be writing games with group feedback and tutor led suggestions to help you hone your comedy writing skills. By the end of the course you will know how to write comedy and will have the confidence to stand up on your own and make a group of total strangers laugh.
More importantly, you will laugh loads over the entire course.
DATES: July 7th to 14th

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.
