If you're a fan of comedy, Scott Dikkers is somebody you should know. If you ever thought you were funny and maybe thought you could make a living doing comedy, Scott Dikkers is a guy you NEED to know. He's made a living from doing all kinds of comedy for more than 30 years. He started as a performer, doing voicework for commercials and video games. Then he became a full-time cartoonist. Then he was one of the founders of The Onion.
From there he went on to write New York Times #1 bestselling books, write for TV comedy shows, make movies, and mentor other funny people, helping them succeed in the comedy business and win multiple Emmy awards and become comedy celebrities in their own right.
Most recently, he put together a teaching program at The Second City in Chicago, and a lot of the students who took his 8-week class have gone on to build careers in comedy.
Now Scott has built on all that and put all his knowledge about how the comedy business works and how to succeed at it into the exhaustive Comedy Business School online course. We highly recommend the course, which also includes all three of his bestselling books (How to Write Funny, How to Write Funnier, and Outrageous Marketing), five checklists and tips cheatsheets (like “Jump Start Your Comedy Career Now” and “23 Tips to Improve Your Stand-Up Fast”), private Facebook Group access, and quarterly AMA calls with Scott.
Side note: If you're looking to improve your comedy writing before jumping into the business aspect (or just want to sharpen your comedic toolkit), we recommend taking Scott's How to Write Funny online course (based on his bestselling book), which breaks down the basic fundamentals of comedy writing for you step-by-step.
