Directing Comedy!

Directing Comedy 101 with Director Jonathan Brough

Is directing an art form or a skill? Perhaps it’s a bit of both? With over 20 years of professional experience, acclaimed comedy director Jonathan Brough is going to breakdown four scenes to show you exactly how to get the best from your scripts and actors in Wednesday’s Running Free Skills.


Jonathan's work on the hit ABC comedy Rosehaven won him the 'Best Direction of a TV Comedy' award at the Australian Directors' Guild Awards in 2018. He won the same award in 2016 for his work on Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane, and sitcom The Family Law received two nominations - including 'Best Comedy' - in the 2016 AACTA awards.

It goes live on Wednesday 17 June at 10am AEST.
