Sitcoms and other nonsense image

Having written for comedy and entertainment shows ranging from Miranda and Not Going Out to Top Gear and TFI Friday, writer and comedian Paul Kerensa lifts the lid on the comedymobile, tinkers around and steps back to see if any sparks fly.

Hear about mining scripts for comic nuggets, the lessons of sitcom-writing transferable to other genres, making the most of opportunities in professional comedy writing, plus some elementary joke-writing exercises. We’ll look at the big picture of sitcom-writing, as well as the fine detail of why a script might not be working.
