Comedy Swamp presents a brilliant opportunity to take part in a comedy writing workshop with Logan Murray, an award winning director who has coached many of the most successful comedians in the U.K. over the last ten years.

‘There is no such thing as a bad joke, just an underdeveloped joke’

Do you want to learn the basic principles of comedy?

Would you like to learn how easy it is to discover funny ideas?

Would you like tips for transforming a mildly amusing idea into a brilliantly funny sketch, monologue or stand up routine?

Then this evening taster into the world of comedy writing could be for you.

From finding your creative inspiration to learning the building blocks of jokes, workshop will help you become a better writer and creative thinker.

This short course will cover the basics of comic grammar , including afterthought, attitude, misunderstanding for comic effect, saying one thing but revealing another and – perhaps most importantly – how to mine one subject for many different comic ideas.

It may be the best use of three hours you experience this year. Along the way, we will laugh loads, too.

Logan has been working comedian for three decades and works all around the world teaching people how to be funny and how to be better performers. He has taught people from as far West as Colorado and as far East as the Shanghai. He has a master’s degree in Comedy and is the author of the highly acclaimed, best selling Teach Yourself book ‘Be a Great Stand Up’.
