John Vorhaus has taught and trained comedy writers all over the world, and is the only human in history to have worked on the American, Russian and Bulgarian versions of Married… with Children. His Comic Toolbox and Little Book of SITCOM are (also on audio book) considered bibles of the craft. His latest offering is a must-have handbook, The Little Book of Standup.
Join him for two fun and actionable-content sessions on April 2, 2022, 12:55-1:45 pm and 1:55-2:45 pm Pacific Time. The day-long event begins at 10:30 am Pacific time and runs through an after-party from 5-6 pm. Click here to register for the Saturday conference. The fee is $75 for the live event and one-year access to the session’s recordings.
His first session distills The Comic Toolbox and offers up sure-fire comedy techniques. The second session covers how comic characters are created for sitcoms and how to structure their relationships–and their world–to last for an ongoing war of wills.
Vorhaus has written five books on writing, seven novels, ten books on poker, two produced screenplays and (with Kevin Pollak) one documentary, Misery Loves Comedy. He is a member of the Writers Guild of America, with credits dating back to before you were born. He tells everybody every day what a funny guy he is and they just laugh.
We’re pleased that John will be running two sessions, imparting so much information that you’ll need to take notes as fast as you can. But no worries, if you miss anything because you’re cracking up, you can buy his books, too.
