This review is from: Your Sitcom Mission... Should You Choose To Accept It (Kindle Edition)
If you have even the vaguest interest in writing sit com, regardless of if you want to enter the sit commission competition or not, this little book punches way, way above it's weight and price.
The first half is by the sit commission team, and gives specific guidance on how to approach writing for that particular competition - 15 minutes of live staged sit com - and would be well worth the price for that alone.
The second is a potted version of John Vorhaus'The Comic Toolbox: How to Be Funny Even If You're Not method and insight into how sit com comedy works, and how to manage the creative process effectively. It works. I don't mind admitting, I've been sleeping with John Vorhaus and the Sit Commission team for a few weeks now, and while I haven't landed any plum jobs so far as a result, well... lets just say they laughed me into bed and it's been a ride I'm really glad to have taken. And, I'll be going back for more. This one's definitely a keeper.
