5x BAFTA-winning comedy writer Graham Linehan brings the world premiere of his comprehensive comedy writing workshop Insights Into The Art Of TV Comedy Writing to Australia this June.
Graham Linehan says, "Creativity is messy and demanding and confusing. Writing is fun and easy and impossible and awful. Figuring it all out is something I've been trying to do for the last twenty five years and I'm hoping that I've gained enough insights into my own process that I won't actually mess yours up too much. So come and join me!"
Born in the Republic of Ireland, Graham started writing comedy in the early 1990s after spending time as a music and film critic. He co-wrote the classic Irish sitcom Father Ted and went on to write and direct hugely popular shows such as Big Train, Black Books, The IT Crowd, Count Arthur Strong and The Walshes. He also wrote the highly-successful stage adaptation of The Ladykillers.
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to gain insights and advice from one of the world’s most respected comedy writers. Tickets are strictly limited - get in quick!
