The best thing about Tim’s comedy course is that it’s really practical. It’s not like other courses I’ve done where you are left thinking “OK great theory – but how do I make use of that?” Tim makes it very clear how you can apply what you learn to your own comedy writing.

Tim Ferguson’s Cheeky Monkey book/course was a key factor in moving me from free open mic stand-up comedy to performing paid spots in professional comedy clubs.

Even after five years of intensive screenwriting study Tim Ferguson’s comedy course impressed me with its savvy insights, passionate delivery and ability to turn even non-believers into skilled comedy writers. Absolutely worth every cent.
