Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Comedy Writing with Gráinne Maguire

Sat 30 - Fri 12 Aug 2022

During this time together, look at basic joke structure, how to brainstorm productively and how to get into the mindset to write every day.

Word play, puns! How to create the snappy one liners that will get you those delicious retweets. Exaggeration. How to add the pop to your jokes that will get those big laughs. Topical Joke Writing. Using a fool proof method, we’ll see how anyone with practice can write jokes about the news, to a deadline.

Look at examples of different stand-up routines, different types of jokes and different ways of being funny.

A safe space will be created to find new comedy muscles in your brain you didn’t know existed. 

Discuss ways of being creative, how to avoid self-defeating thinking and silencing the goblin on your shoulder that sabotages your writing process. 

Join Gráinne on a fun, creative journey and find the funny together!
