Turn your comedy idea into reality

Course dates: Saturday 12 – Sunday 13 October 10.30 – 17.00

Read the course outline.

Do you have a TV or radio comedy idea? Do you want to discover more about how writing comedy for these mediums works? This two-day course is inspired by the British Library’s acquisition of the Michael Palin archive, which features handwritten original Monty Python scripts, and draws on the historic P G Wodehouse archive, which is shown to participants by a British Library curator.

Using these collections as a starting point, explore comedy scene writing and plotting and character development with expert guidance from tutor Chris Head and special guest, Lucy Lumsden. Lucy will also give us an insight into the comedy industry and how to pitch your ideas.

This course offers a unique opportunity to develop your own comedy ideas in a creative, focused and supportive environment.
