We’re puttin’ on a show, starring AND written by…YOU!
This 8 week class will build upon your sketch comedy writing and improv performance skills, culminating in an original satirical sketch show written and performed by the students (directed by the instructor). You’ll learn new content generation techniques, new sketch formats, methods to sharpen the “voice” in your sketches, and ways to create original yet memorable characters.
Students should have some improv performance experience, and have taken the SketchPad 1 class (or equivalent). Coach/Dean approval is required; email firstname.lastname@example.org with any eligibility questions.
