This is a 30 minute clip from a larger video series. I found it to be useful, especially for the beginner to comedy writing. Scott does a nice job of breaking things down and giving examples. The tip about lists was my biggest takeaway. I’m interested in checking out the full “Standing Up on Stage” series.

I think Scott is really funny. So for me, a lecture on comedy by this guy is a must buy.

And I was not disappointed. In this short lecture you will learn some basics of comedy and see him analyse the structure of joke writing. And at the end of the lecture he is creating a joke in real time. Very interesting stuff.

This lecture is part of his "Standing up on stage" DvD series so if you don't own them this is a nice little preview.
