“Nothing short of life-changing…”
“I have had the pleasure of taking Scott’s classes over the last three years and they have been nothing short of life-changing."

When I first started, I was a comedy novice and a part-time writer at best. But after taking Scott’s classes, I finally launched my own comedy blog and now run a weekly Writer’s Room with a dozen other writers. Scott’s classes not only provided me with a strong foundation in comedy writing, but also the skills and training necessary to lead and manage a team.”

“Instrumental in making me a full-time comedy writer.”

His analytical approach to writing and critiquing jokes helps you really understand what makes something funny, and helps transform the often enigmatic, frustrating process of writing comedy into something more productive and tangible. Any aspiring comedian, no matter their level of experience, can benefit from his knowledge.”
