I’m six pages in (at least ten minutes if performed) into my radio script and despite the fact that it is meant to be humourous it only has one funny line thus far, and it might be funny only because the rest of the script is rather dry and boring. If I said this was meant to be the case I wouldn’t be lying all that much. The show is a documentary of sorts; science of the future based upon philosophical solutions to issues we have now (and the consequences of these solutions). I’m trying to get the framework of the documentary format down and that means info splurge for the time being. I need to know what I should be making funny by taking it all rather, well, seriously.
Still, I just know that by the end of this process I will really wish I had decided to start with the much more viable ‘second idea.’ At least that one is likely to be looked at.
