I went to the Punch Up Guy for help with my script and not only did he make improvements to the jokes I had, he took the script to an entirely different level. He gave me character and story ideas that opened up areas for new jokes without messing with framework of the script.
I would definitely use him again.
Andy Wasif is hands down THE BEST story/script consultant and joke puncher-upper (is that a word?) that I have ever worked with and that includes big industry writer/producers (who shall remain nameless)!
What makes Andy's service so unique is that he is both funny AND knows story structure. On top of that, he felt very relatable to a green writer, never talking down to me.He seems to genuinely care about making each individual a stronger writer regardless of her weaknesses.
Andy was not only able to help me restructure my spec, but he gave me a FREE consultation in which he spent nearly 2 hours discussing ways to both make the story stronger and just riffing jokes that organically stemmed from the situation, jokes compatible with the various characters' voices.
I am beyond happy with the results of the consultation and expect to use Andy again in the near future because -- he's worth it!
Smart, thorough and above all funny, Andy's insights into my work have been priceless. Trust this man, he knows what he's doing. Also, hide your daughters 'cause he's handsome too!
