The problem with writing funny for kids is that there’s many different types of funny. Whether it’s wordplay, slapstick, parody, political, gross-out, nonsense or a combination of all of these, the purpose of this workshop is to help you identify your natural humour style and how to navigate between the often conflicting tastes of yourself, your audience and the gatekeepers.
