Jean is one of three instructors who will guide you through the six-week program. She graduated from writing song parodies for her singing telegram company to becoming one of the top five writers at Comedywire, an online comedy writing resource with thousands of members. She dabbled in standup yet found her true passion was writing and creating show concepts that incorporated humor. She is the creator and producer of the upcoming "The Big Little Film Show," soon to be released later this year. Her superpower is writing. She is the most prolific of the three in that department.
Testimonials From Famous People
“Having been a professional comedy writer for over 40 years, I can say without reservation that Jean Wescott has one the sharpest, most nimble comedy minds in the industry. For five years, I served as the Head Monologue Writer to David Letterman and subsequently have written for many late-night talk shows. Jean is as solid a joke writer as I've ever come across. Her jokes are concise, precise, hard-hitting, and always hilarious. I can't recommend her more highly.”
