Claire Halliday in conversation with Journalist/author/comedian, Joanne Brookfield and actor/comedian/scriptwriter/author, Fiona Harris

Writing for comedy is a unique skill that is all about creating laughter - even when you're not always smiling yourself.

Join writer Claire Halliday in conversation with Journalist/author/comedian, Joanne Brookfield and actor/comedian/scriptwriter/author, Fiona Harris to explore what it takes to make comedy writing work.

As the author of No Apologies, Joanne interviewed dozens of Australia's leading female comedians to discover how they carved careers in a challenging industry and she shares these insights with her own personal experience writing shows for international comedy festivals.
Fiona is the co-writer of the hit web series and novel, The Drop-Off, and has spent two decades writing comedy for popular sketch comedy TV shows, as well as writing and directing her own international comedy festival shows.
