Ideal for

Writers who would like to build their comic skills. Comics who would like to build their writing skills. People who would like to learn how to make other people laugh.

The true nature of humour had eluded me until I did Tim's comedy workshop.Understanding what really makes people laugh has turned my writing on its head so my feet are now on the ground. Highly recommended.
