As the busiest script consultant UK my script report and script coverage service is heavily in demand, even more so for people who have written Sitcom or comedy scripts. And that’s not just because I’m a funny guy – it’s the exact opposite – when it comes to comedy and sitcom scripts in particular I’m pretty serious about the science of sitcom and the creation of genuine comedy.
I Don’t Believe it – genuine comedy feedback.
Sitcom is one of the hardest nuts to crack in UK TV – if you get it RIGHT – a successful sitcom will pay off like a lottery win. Shows like Only Fools and Horses, Porridge, One Foot in The Grave, Fawlty Towers and The Office are on endless repeats all across the world – and some will be rebooted for audiences in the USA too.
Qualified Comedy Script Doctor
But is there really a science to sitcom? Well, I don’t guarantee a bona fido success formula – but I can tell you quite simply why sitcom scripts work when they do and why – and I can apply that knowledge to your script in the feedback I give.
Don’t mention the war!
So, if you’ve got a sitcom or comedy script that you’re looking to send out to the industry – take a moment and let me have a word in your ear – get proper feedback from me (BAFTA shortlisted and Royal Television Society nominated as a scriptwriter) your sitcom or comedy script will benefit from my industry specific feedback (not from a nameless reader of questionable experience). And I tailor reports specifically for sitcom and comedy scripts – including a whole section on the careers of sitcom and comedy writers (how to get started).
He Who Dares – the science of sitcom
You’ll also get a good five-page section on my ‘science of sitcom’. Get in touch with me on firstname.lastname@example.org – you know it makes sense.
