Humor Mining

Stories with humor test better with audiences. 

Whether you want to ad a bit of comic relief to a serious tale or you're really going for the laughs throughout, you've come to the right place. FFS Media specializes in comedy. 

Any story can be funnier. And, as you probably know, many who shoot for humor fail in a big way. There is nothing more unpleasant for readers than humor that misses the mark. Outside of making them cringe, a bad joke can lead to a pitchfork mob knocking ever-so-politely at the author's door. 

Might we suggest taking necessary steps to avoid that nightmare?

Humor Mining won't write all your jokes for you or fake laugh at what you have. 

A Humor Mining session will help you understand how humor works (yes, it's both a science and an art) and where it naturally exists in your story, waiting to be polished off and put on display. Have a specific scene or passage you want to focus on? Claire will take a look at it and tell you how to bring out the shine that will catch the eye of your specific target audience.
