Comedy is a challenging and competitive business.

Now you can get the edge!

Despite what you might think, comedy is not a mysterious art. It is a craft based upon ancient principles. These principles are universally applied through all comedies. Every joke has a name.

A practical understanding of comedy is vital for any screenwriter or comedian.

In this two-day masterclass, one of Australia’s most internationally successful comedians ‘unlocks the code’ to comedy writing for the stage and screen.

You can be a Beginner, Professional or simply an Enthusiast. Everyone can benefit from the course.

Tim Ferguson’s revolutionary masterclass shows you practical processes for devising jokes, comic characters, conflict and stories. Learn how to construct a comedy movie, sitcom or short-film.

Discover how to sell your ideas to the market.

Tim Ferguson is author of the bestselling comedy writing manual, The Cheeky Monkey.
