Shaun Majumder says,

"Bob Kerr leads with funny, and leaves his ego at the door. I have known Bob Kerr for many years and without a doubt, he is one of the funniest minds I have ever worked with. While working with Bob at This Hour Has 22 Minutes, I was always excited to see what Bob wrote, whether for me or any other cast member. Bob would always bring something original, and always hilarious. Not only did he write great sketches, but he was also a great collaborator. If I brought ideas to him he would be able to help shape and work together to get the sketch show ready. And when it comes to punch up? Who are you kidding there buddy? He's amazing. His surgical ability to transform a "meh" monologue into a fast, joke filled punchy piece was amazing. If you are considering hiring Bob Kerr, don't. Because I want to hire him when I get a new show. "

Susan Kent says,

Bob is the funniest writer and the most fun person to hang with. He will have you cracking up while he’s teaching you to be a top notch comedy writer.

Testimonials from previous students:

"This course was very valuable as it forced me to set aside some time each week to devote to learning the craft of joke writing. With his years of industry experience, Bob created a relaxed and supportive atmosphere where I felt safe pitching ideas to him and the other students."

"His class was invaluable to me personally and to my self-esteem..."

"I'm so glad I took a chance on Bob Kerr's workshop."
