Comedy has long been one of Hollywood’s most popular genres, but also one of the most challenging to do well.  As a comedy writer you’re charged with the task of not only creating a story that can sustain itself over 90 minutes, but one that also keeps your audience laughing for 90 minutes.

This workshop will cover story and character design, setup/payoff relationships, set pieces and runners, what Hollywood is currently looking for, and over 20 techniques that can be used in designing hilarious beats and sequences.  A must for comedy writers of all levels and styles.
