Attitude is key

Attitude is key to comedy. Ask ‘What attitude does the character bring to the situation?’
If his attitude isn’t clear, the story can feel flat and bland. Comedy comes from the character’s heightened attitude as the scene progresses.

Ask yourself ‘What motivates the character?’ Attitude comes out of what we want to happen.
