In the wake of the Comedy Festival, we are reminded that NZ comedy is alive and kicking, and we have a national (and possibly international) audience ready to embrace it.
Whether its odd-ball characters, slapstick or dark humour, in sketch or narrative content, are we making the most of our potential to write great comedic work for the screen?
This May we bring together a panel of screenwriters and comedians for serious discussion about comedy.
Join us to hear writer/director Gerard Johnstone (Terry Teo, Housebound, The Jaquie Brown Diaries), actor/writer/producer Millen Baird (Auckland Daze, The Millen Baird Show) and actor/writer/director Florence Noble (7DaysLater, Meanwhile on Earth) as they talk to actor/writer/playwright Tom Sainsbury (Super City, Dynamotion) about the challenge of creating comedic stories and characters that come alive on screen.
Come early for a drink and stay afterwards for a slice of pizza on us.
Tues 31st May, The Classic, 321 Queen Street, 7pm drinks, 7:30-8:30pm talk. $5 koha appreciated.
