Sketch Comedy – FREE 1-day workshop
Do you love making people laugh? Do you want to write comedy sketches like the ones you see on Saturday Night Live? This is the class for you! In this workshop, students will use improv and writing exercises to generate hilarious ideas. Then, in a supportive and constructive environment, students will develop those ideas into written scenes that could be at home on a TV sketch show or a comedy stage! We’ll explore some common types of sketches, like the commercial parody, as well as techniques to heighten and revise. Making people laugh is one of the most exciting and fulfilling things a writer can do, and students will leave this class with the tools to do just that!
