Face to Face Courses

Our popular 6 week course at the Downstairs at the Kings Head comedy club in North London will return in Autumn 2021. Keep an eye on this web site for dates, times and booking details.

This course sets out a number of successful formulae and powerful tools for writing comedy, passing on numerous techniques developed writing for fringe, television, radio and digital. While looking at the disciplines of sketch writing, sitcom and stand-up, students learn how the pros use repetition, callback, reversal and other tricks of the trade to make the audience laugh. The courses are also a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and fellow writers! Non-compulsory writing assignments are set as “homework” between each workshop and then reviewed by the group the following week. No previous experience is necessary for this course.
