Hi, I’m Scott Dikkers.
Founder of TheOnion.com
I’ve spent years teaching people to be funny. Yes, it’s true—you can be taught how to be funny! 
It’s a common misconception that people are born funny. That’s simply not possible. I’ve never 
met a funny infant. Like everything else in life, it’s a learned skill that you can improve upon 
with practice and the correct tools. I’ve perfected these tools over the years through hard work 
and a lot of falling flat on my face. Now you don’t have to waste any time figuring it out on 
your own—you can take the fast track!

In my latest course, How To Write Funny 
(based on my bestselling book) you’ll learn:


How to get past writer's block and 
churn out high quality concepts 
and jokes…


The basic fundamentals broken down 
for you step-by-step (great for beginners 
as well as seasoned professionals who 
want to sharpen their tools)…


How to cultivate motivation (something 
we all need)…

"Instrumental in making me a full-time comedy writer."
"Scott’s teaching was 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."

How To Write Funny is your complete, one-stop, how-to manual for understanding and 
mastering the fundamentals of comedy writing.

In the past, if you wanted to learn comedy in an actionable way that really worked, you had to:

🤑Learn stand-up comedy by spending as much as 20 years performing at comedy
 clubs, wasting THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS per year.

🤑Study at one of a handful of accredited universities that have a comedy major and 
spend as much as $50,000 on tuition, fees, books, and other expenses

🤑Take SEVERAL LEVELS of improv or writing classes at a major comedy training 
center at $300 per class.
Cost of learning stand-up on the road = 
20 YEARS and perhaps $100,000

Cost of an accredited college program that offers a college major = 
4 years and upwards of $50,000

Cost of taking classes at a famous comedy training center = 
at least $2400
If someone who wanted to learn comedy was faced with these expenses, how 
much do you think they would expect to pay for an easy shortcut if they only 
knew about it?
