In this Film Courage video interview, Author/Speaker/Artist/Screenwriter John Vorhaus explains the plot structure of comedy and drama in an interview. In comedy, the hero undergoes a change from denial to acceptance of a theme, rewarded with community, whereas tragedy leads to the hero’s failure to learn the lesson, resulting in punishment or exile. He mentions examples like „Liar Liar“ and „The Great Gatsby“ to illustrate the difference. John Vorhaus is best known for his comedy-writing classic, The Comic Toolbox: How to be Funny Even if You’re Not. He has taught and trained writers in 37 countries on five continents at last count, and created TV shows of his own in Nicaragua, Romania and elsewhere. His writing credits include dozens of teleplays and screenplays, plus seven novels and some two dozen works of non-fiction. His latest book is the little book of STANDUP. Vorhaus is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and a member of the Writers Guild of America. He lives in Southern California and secretly controls the world from www.johnvorhaus.com.
