Our tutor, Adam Bromley, has worked in radio comedy on and off for 14 years and has won 2 Sony Awards for Comedy for "Think the Unthinkable" and "The Now Show" for BBC R4.
Adam has had 13 original series commissions for network radio, produced and executive produced shows for R4, 4Xtra, R2, 5 Live, BBC London and BBC Local radio.
The cost for the day is £100 including post-event production and delivery of a short recorded comedy "bit", sketch or scene.
Outline of the day:
- Overview of radio comedy genres
- Monologue fundamentals
