Did anyone else do this postal course in the 1990s put together by Vince Powell and George Evans? It was 10 weeks where they set you homework on all aspects of comedy, which they would then appraise each week, and with that were examples of scripts from their past glories and what seems to be failures!
Sad coincidence I've just noticed is that Vince was unable to attend George's funeral in April 2009, as he was clearly very ill and died just three months later in July.
Here is some of the material and homework they set :-
Newspaper ad that caught my attention back in '92
