About the workshop:
‘How to Write a Comedy Script?’ – A Workshop by AnuvabPal (supported by SWA)
William Shakespeare once said, comedy is tragedy plus time. But is it reallythat simple? What makes a scene or a script inherently comic? Is it tone,content, situation, absurdity, the opposite of what would happen in regularlife, all of these or none of these?
In a 2-day workshop, Anuvab Pal takes you through writing and buildingthe structure of comedy scripts, focusing on how to write a comic scene, andthe tools required/ differences to establish in building a comedy story asopposed to any other genre. Ultimately, as someone said, funny is funny, but inthe age of stand up comedy that’s very fashionable in India today, canthis be taught? Or is it just instinct? What’s the difference between writingcharacters and doing stand-up? Is being funny the same as writing funny? Comefind out.
