What's not to love about TV comedies? They lighten the week, make us laugh, and are pure fun to watch with friends and family. There are so many elements that make a TV comedy special, but there is one real secret ingredient: the characters. If we love these characters, we'll come back episode after episode, week after week, in order to spend time with them. 

But how can we create such awesome and memorable characters in our own writing? Worry not! The wonderful Tommy Stackhouse is here with a two week clinic to help!
