SKETCH 101 (Starts April 23rd)
Learn the fundamentals of Sketch Comedy in a fun and supportive environment! Over three classes, we'll break down the standard structure of a successful sketch and teach you how to write sketches in all formats (Premise, Parody, Satire, Commercial, Character, Absurd, etc) as we break down existing sketches from a wide array of tones and approaches. Join us in a positive, writers' room environment, build your sketch comedy portfolio and discover your comedic voice along the way.
