Posted by

Steve Kaplan is a guest on The Carleena Show podcast with host Carleena Angwin. We discuss his book The Comic Hero's Journey. “Characters in comedies don’t want to change. They want to stay the same.”

Steve Kaplan is a comedy consultant for HBO, Disney, DreamWorks, Sony, and many other media companies. He teaches his signature Comedy Intensive Workshops around the world, and is the author of The Hidden Tools of Comedy and The Comic Hero’s Journey.

Today on the show, Kaplan explains how the Comic Hero’s Journey differs from the classic Hero’s Journey. We also discuss drawing from personal experiences to create comedy.
