I'm not great with comedy... probably because I don't find much (on the screen) funny. I won't slag off TV comedies that have my friends in raptures, but they leave me totally unmoved and bored. Ab Fab raised a titter, great concept, but my funniest film would be Fargo and I'm not sure that counts? How long ago were they made?? Nothing since then - really?
Well, a director's got in touch asking me to co-write a comedy. I've warned him straight away, I'm shite at comedy! I start off trying to be comic, then veer into serious territory.
Still, most of the 'funniness' is already there, and it is up my street (see Fargo comment), it just needs tidying up. So I've said yes, of course. Even if it doesn't progress, I feel that perhaps I should be able to write a comedy that I would find funny so it's good experience if nothing else - and hopefully a credit on IMDB.
