The 5-2 draft

On his blog, comedy writer Ken Levine explain s the principles of the 5-2 draft.
So my partner and I have written the script. We’re very happy with it. Been over it several times. It’s ready to turn in.

But first –

The 5-2 draft.

We always make one final pass and do the following – add 5 great jokes, take out 2 pages.

  1. Truly a great discipline but how painful is it to take out those two pages? The least funniest perhaps? What if five more good jokes were added without losing any pages?
