I thought that maybe these 2 were writing individually. It isn't clear.

I have it on very good authority that they do it together.

The fact that they joined Dead Ringers at the same time might have been a clue?

Apart from this, what do you think your biggest break was, Bonzo?

Please God, don't let her say she paid £10,000 for a three-day course on "How to write radio comedy"!

Do you expect her to say that? Why would paying for a course be her big break?

No, I don't expect her to say that.

If she had for a very long time been trying unsuccessfully to sell her comedy writings and, after having attended a comedy writing course, had used her newfound skills to write something that had so impressed the people at "Dead Ringers" that they offered her money to write for them, she might well consider that God or the universe or some other luck-dispensing entity had finally given her a big break by drawing her attention to that course and causing her to enrol.

It was, of course, a joke based upon a recent post that brought up the debatable value of writing courses.
