Harold Snoad - Directing Situation Comedy

Director/producer Harold Snoad's account of the way in which he has worked over many years producing comedy programmes for television from first script, right through to studio production in front of an audience.

For more than 20 years, Harold Snoad has produced and directed some of the BBC's best-known comedies including The Dick Emery Show, Don't Wait Up and Ever Decreasing Circles. In the course of his work he has encountered every kind of problem, from the not-quite-adequate script to the trained animal that won't perform. This book describes the author's approach to the complex process of making people laugh through the television screen. It is a most valuable record of do's and dont's, as well as a step-by-step account that will be indispensable to all those involved in the making of television comedy.
