Write Comedy at the Professional Level.
Our Comedy Software takes you beyond being funny to writing a professional script that builds its humor all the way to the end.
Comedy is the single most successful story form.
But one reason comedy is so difficult is that it has at least eight different structures, each with very different story beats.
