Writers’ Workshops. Reserve your seat.


I’ve been writing for TV, working with producers, writing teams and new writers since 1990. What’s funny changes. Telling it funny is a serious craft. My workshops are friendly, structured and focussed on results.

I am available to consult and/or lead workshops for specific productions.

We have used Bennett as a script consultant many times. You will learn tons about writing (and selling) really successful comedy scripts.

        Script Boost



        This rate is for working direct with a writer, not full production consultancy.

        I work with you, on your project, to make it tighter and funnier. I read your screenplay/script and give you 6 hours of one-to-one working (usually in three chunks).

        I provide analysis, suggestions and coaching. Of course new material is always created. Everything we write together on the project – you own.

        If you choose to continue working together, beyond the six hours, the same rate will apply. £60 per hour.

        Live video or in person (logistics permitting)
        Six hours in total, split as required.

        It only takes a short phone conversation to see if
        we’re a good fit. Make contact and let’s talk.
