VeDRA, the Association for Film and Television Dramaturgy in German-speaking countries is pleased to announce the professional training with American writer, creator, editor, development executive, dramaturg and comedy coach John Vorhaus.

This will be a great and intense day of practical exercises and skill building for everyone who wants to work on developing their comic tools, stories and “voice.”

In a small group, you’ll learn about the comic premise, the comic filter, how to create comic characters and so much more. Bring your own jokes, stories or ideas to pitch. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to workshop your material and learn how to make your good comedy great!
