Sketch Comedy Writing Level 1: Intro to Sketch

June 3 @ 6:00 pm - July 22 @ 9:00 pm


The summer 2024 Sketch Comedy Writing Level 1: Intro to Sketch class is sold out. If you would like to be notified about future sketch classes, please let us know through our Contact Form.

In this 8-week course, students learn the basics of sketch comedy writing for the stage while working on developing, strengthening, and trusting their comedic instincts. Topics include character creation, point of view, story, audience, tension, stakes, the 5-point structure, and more. Students are assigned various in-class writing assignments and provided sample sketches written by Second City (Chicago) Alumni, which will be read and analyzed in class. Beginning Week Four, students are required to write one 5-page sketch/week based on a specific “sketch pattern.” Sketch patterns covered in Level 1 include: Classic Relationship Sketch, Clash of Context, Fish out of Water, and Inappropriate Response. These sketches will be read aloud in class and discussed among students in a workshop-style critique.

PLEASE NOTE: Additional sketch levels are dependent on the availability of the instructor; enrollment in this class does notĀ guaranteeĀ a full scale production.

Intended for students 18+. Limited to eight students.

Register by June 2, 2024.
