This course tells you everything you need to know about breaking into comedy. How to develop your style, then find outlets for it: writing for stand-ups, getting sketches on radio, writing sitcoms, web writing, meeting producers. Everything then, except how to be funny. That's your job. 'If you want to get serious about writing comedy, Dave's course is a great place to start. I also now co-write regularly with another of the attendees I met on the course' (Griff Phillips, comedy writer). 'The help Dave has given me with my own work is immeasurable' (David Byrne, writer/director Stroke of Genius, Pleasance London/Edinburgh 2009).
