Event Description

MONDAYS 6:30pm – 9:30pm


This class will focus on the fundamentals of sketch writing, including idea generation, brainstorming, comic premises and sketch structure. Whether you’re a beginning writer, a seasoned writer looking to learn a new form, or just want to refocus your writing in an encouraging, collaborative atmosphere, this class is for you. Through class exercises and assignments, students will learn to write comedy sketches from beginning to end. We recommend brining a laptop or tablet to class but a notebook works too! 


In the final two weeks of class students will work with a cast of actors to create a performance of staged readings of their best sketches for the class show on April 22.
