Event Description

Quickly turn improv scenes into premise-driven sketch comedy

Writing good sketches doesn't have to take days slaving away in a coffee shop. Learn the fast and focused "Kids in the Hall method" of improv-based sketch writing. Work with the legendary Kids in the Hall co-founder Kevin McDonald in this day-long workshop, as he forms groups, runs improv exercises, and helps you hone in on a premise-driven sketch.

This is a hands-on, get-up-and-go workshop that will have you performing, writing, and learning all day long. At the end of the day, you'll have a brand new sketch that's ready to be performed, plus tips and lessons to apply in future writing sessions.

Students should plan to bring a notebook, pen, and water bottle. Laptops are optional but encouraged.
