Sketch 1 - MondayMULTIWEEK
An intro to sketch comedy writing. You’ll learn a basic formula for writing sketch. We’ll cover how to take that funny idea you wrote down in your phone one day, all the way to a complete, ready-to-produce sketch. This is a hands-on writing course. You don't need to come to class with a sketch pre-written, but you will be writing new sketches over the five weeks. The class will end with an online reading.
