Everyone loves – and hates – sitcom. On TV it’s the goldmine genre, the one watched by millions. There’s a special place in our hearts for Fawlty, Frasier, Blackadder and Brent. An absurd predicament, witty banter, a group of hilariously dysfunctional people: it all seems so easy. But is it? If you’ve ever said ‘I can do better than that’, then this is the book for you. How to be a Sitcom Writer will encourage, test and pull you through the comedy boot camp that is writing narrative-led character comedy for radio/TV.
