Where Comedy Comes From

[acf field=”date”] | [acf field=”venue”] | [acf field=”special”]

Where comedy comes from… and how to get it out of you.

In this 90 minute workshop, comedy writer Dale Shaw will help to identify various sources of humour, then take those funny nuggets and inject them into your own work.

Taking examples from classic TV and film, this entertaining, illuminating, hands-on class will help you to add comedy to anything you write.
