Advanced Sketch

ADVANCED SKETCH 1 SPOT LEFT

A sketch writing class for experienced sketch writers. Designed for writers who’ve taken a class with me or have writing experience elsewhere. We’ll hit the ground running in this one. Bring ideas for the first class and we’ll start pitching and writing right away. Learn new forms- character monologues, parodies, political & topical sketches. Convert your improv scenes to sketch. Take scripts away from this class that you can shoot or stage. As always, the focus is writing what YOU find funny. Hone your comedic voice and make the process of writing a joy.
