I will be holding another SITCOM ROOM weekend seminar this October 17 & 18 in Los Angeles. Registration will be later this week. But it will open one hour earlier for anyone on the Alert List. Here’s where you go to sign up for that. (The list is private and will never be shared. And you can unsubscribe at any time.)
So why should you sign up for the SITCOM ROOM?
It’s the only truly hands-on writing seminar there is.
I only hold it once every couple of years.
You get to see professional actors perform your work.
It’s something to do.
This might help you break into the business.
You learn things about yourself that you never knew. (Good things even)
You’ll learn your strengths and weaknesses.
You build lifelong friendships.
You might even find a writing partner.
You get to hear some of my old war stories.
You’ll laugh for two straight days.
No experience is necessary.
You’ll develop a taste for Red Vines.
You’ll learn different “types” of comedy and which are bested suited for sitcoms.
You’ll learn how to write spec scripts that sell.
There’s no keynote speech by Tommy Lasorda.
Even if you don’t want to do this professionally, it’s “fantasy camp” for comedy writers.
You get to live out a dream.
You get to meet some of my friends.
You’ll forever see sitcoms in a whole new light.
I only lecture once.
You learn how to make things funnier.
Chicks love comedy writers.
You learn how to be creative on demand.
You learn whether this is the career path for you.
It’s a lot cheaper than a year at NYU.
You’ll be introduced to the business side of sitcom writing – agents, managers, job opportunities, salaries, and marketplaces,
It’s something to look forward to in October besides the World Series (unless it’s held in November this year) and Halloween.
You develop new ways of thinking.
There’s never more than twenty attendees so that everyone gets personal attention.
You’re held to professional standards.
There’s a Burger King across the street.
Former attendees have gone on to have nice careers in writing. One was on staff of NURSE JACKEE.
You get to ask me lots of questions.
You come away not just with a notebook of notes but with a scene you’ve co-written (and rewritten) and a great sense of accomplishment.
Here’s what past attendees have said (and a few more always chime in with an unsolicited comment or two), and again – here’s the Alert List. Hope to see you at this year’s SITCOM ROOM.
