‘It’s like a Jedi course for comedy, though Tim is a few heads taller than Yoda.’
May Yeung, Screenwriter
‘I wrote my latest screenplay with Tim’s comedy principals by my side. Every time I noticed that I’d written an unfunny scene, which was only most of the time, I’d grab Tim’s notes and with startling ease make any scene laugh out loud funny.’
Brett Stanning, Screenwriter
‘I realised that you can learn being funny. Seriously!’
