Event description

Description

Great advice on your written work, genuine insight into opportunities for comedy writers and producers and a thorough analysis of what makes a hit show.

This popular workshop will help you get the best out of your talent and ambition. It is limited to eight delegates, which allows us to focus on each student's particular needs during the day.

Our workshop covers Understanding Comedy Commissioning, Devising Ideas That Sell, Script Editing, Pitching Your Project, Characters and Stories That Work, and The Basics (Outlines, Layout and Length).

Where possible, we invite a current producer, writer or commissioner for a Q&A.

We'll be concentrating on Situation Comedy and Comedy Drama but can also advise you on Sketch Comedy, Panel Shows and Comedy Entertainment. (We always try to tailor our sessions to the needs of the delegates.)

Your hosts Mark Robson and Graham Smith have developed, produced and commissioned dozens of successful Comedy television projects, most recently MR. SLOANE for Sky Atlantic and AS YET UNTITLED for Dave. We have made programmes with the likes of David Walliams & Matt Lucas, Vic Reeves, Harry Hill, Steve Coogan, Simon Pegg, Hale & Pace and many more.

This is a rare chance to get the inside knowledge on the Comedy business, from top to toe, in one day.

Here are a few quotes from previous delegates:

"I wish it could have lasted a week"

"Extremely valuable and enjoyable"

"Great fun, thank you"

"The knowledge and enthusiasm of the course leaders was infectious. Great"

"Make it longer!"

"The industry insights weren't the same speeches that you hear every time you attend a scriptwriting panel or festival; they were truthful and also aware of the realities writers have to face"

"Wonderful. Give it a huge recommendation"
