This interactive workshop will break down different sketch types (character, premise, blackout), and reveal the top secret formula behind every SNL, Inside Amy Schumer, and Key & Peele masterpiece. After a short PowerPoint spiel, we'll write a sketch together just like the pros-- and maybe even perform it if we're feeling sassy. You'll leave this class with an ironclad grasp of sketch fundamentals you can use to bring your original stage and video ideas to life.

NOTE: This class is designed for cool people with and without writing experience who are brand new to sketch. Please bring links to one or two of your favorite comedy gems.
