How To Write A Smith And Jones Head To Head

I’ll be honest, I bought this used book under the impression that it was a collection of sketch scripts, and put it aside to read later. I’ve just opened it, and obviously, it’s just transcripts of Smith & Jones’ Head To Heads. Hence the title. I’m a moron.

It’s a little disappointing, as I have no interest in a transcript when I can watch the actual finished product. If it had been shooting scripts, I would have been more than happy though.

That said, the collection is bookended with new material, and ends with this handy guide for how to write one of these head to heads.

In fact, that’s fairly sound advice for writing anything.

This is the one that appears on pages 34 and 35.
