Event Description

Turn an idea into a fully-formed sketch!

You've got a funny idea for a sketch, but now what? In this day-long workshop, you'll be developing brand new sketches based on simple premises you've come up with. You'll learn writing tips and strategies for turning your ideas into fully-formed drafts that are hilarious and engaging. Throughout the day, Kevin will be guiding you through a writing and revision process, giving feedback and direction, and creating a sketch show that you'll perform that evening!

Students will attend a day-long workshop, take a break, and then perform in the 7PM show that evening. At the end of it all, you'll walk away with finished sketches, and the tools to apply Kevin's writing methods for future projects.

Students should arrive with 3-5 premises or ideas for sketches, as well as a notebook, pen, water bottle, and laptop.
