Nailing Funny Voice Over Scripts
Bring the funny to make the money! Learn valuable voice-over and comedy skills!
In advertising comedy is king. This class will prepare seasoned comedians and non-comedians alike to take their comedic reads to the next level! Ad professionals know a clever, well-delivered joke is key to a memorable commercial. It’s also not easy to execute.
So how do you bring the funny to your VO read – even when the copy isn’t necessarily that funny in the first place? In this two-part class, we’ll teach you the construction of a comedy ad and the techniques to craft a memorable, powerfully funny read that gets laughs and gets the attention of clients. Calum and Paco have been working in sketch comedy, standup, improv, and voice over for over two decades. Let them guide you to a funnier read that books you the job!
In Punch It Up you’ll learn comedic tools and language along with our P.U.N.C.H system that will bring challenging comedic voice-over scripts into focus. We use real voice over scripts from radio and television.
