Laughing at jokes is easy; writing those jokes is a lot harder. Whether you’re navigating the worlds of sketch and stand-up or developing a scripted film or television series, good comedy relies on mastering your voice and using it to forge a connection with your audience.

Must have an AFF Producers or Conference Badge for entry.
