‘Like A Boss’ Writers Discuss the Keys to Writing Comedy and Writing as a Tandem

Like A Boss hits theaters January 10th. The film stars comedy giant Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne and Salma Hayek. I had a chance to sit down with the writers of the film, Sam Pitman and Adam Cole-Kelly. The guys spoke about the film, writing as a tandem and how to write comedy among other things. Check out the interview below.


Adam and Sam were a blast to sit down and talk to. They have a lot of knowledge about film and were open to sharing their thoughts. Both had high praise for Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne for their comedic talents.

I found both guys to be self-deprecating and modest. Very personable and naturally funny also. Cool guys to talk to about anything. I enjoyed hearing about their process of working together on a script and the approach they take while working on one.

Sam shared his favorite comedy of 2019, which was Good Boys (great choice). Both guys liked the movie a lot and went into why, which was cool to hear. Sam’s impression of the Joker was something I agreed with also.

One of the things that I was drawn to the most that they spoke of was how authenticity in comedy is one of the most relatable elements. I personally always preferred more relatable characters and stories than the ones that are over-the-top and wacky.
