comic-heros-journey-serious-story-structure-fabulously-funny-films

Turning the Zero into the Hero!

A comic hero or heroine also goes on a journey, but for the comic hero, it’s often quite, quite different. The hero decides to go on the adventure; the comic hero often has no choice. The hero has a wise old man; the comic hero often meets an idiot who inadvertently says something that can teach him a thing or two.

Steve Kaplan will show you the diverse paths that comedy takes in The Comic Hero’s Journey.
