Comedy Writing

I really enjoyed this video from the brilliant website The Pool with Phoebe Waller-Bridge and her friend and collaborator Vicky Jones. Phoebe's writing is so sharp and vivid and the chat reminded how much I love collaborating with other creative folks. I've been co-writing a comedy script with a friend of mine for several years. The project is on-going but it's already taught me a lot. Mainly that writing comedy is HARD. But also that when you get a line right and you get the laugh, it's absolutely brilliant.
