COMEDY WRITING: SITCOM WORKSHOP

keith lindsay 108“A brilliant presentation” JOHN LLOYD CBE, Producer, QI and Blackadder.

A once in a lifetime opportunity to work alongside BBC scriptwriter and script editor Keith Lindsay, who for many years worked with “Only Fools & Horses” creator John Sullivan on the series Green Green Grass. The secret of writing great TV comedy is creating strong, enduring characters, and then using them to generate great plots and storylines.

Situation comedy is undoubtedly one of the most difficult genres for new writers, and writing a sitcom script is a highly specialised craft. Episodes need to be super-structured and original, characters lifelike, believable and engaging and the dialogue slick and pacy. Is your central character mad in a sane world or sane in a mad world?

Should you ever give your central character what he or she really wants? You decide. This workshop is recommended by The Guardian and the British Society of Comedy Writers. Let Keith share his comedy writing secrets with you.

“Insightful, educational, and very funny. Keith Lindsay’s comedy workshop was like mixing Q.I. with Only Fools and Horses. Highly recommended.” Simon Robinson, Creative Director WCRS & Co (Advertising). Max 10 places. Price includes free parking, tea, coffee and soft drinks. Disabled access on request
