Sketch 1: Intro to Sketch Writing

Learn the fundamentals of sketch comedy writing! No experience necessary.

About the class

This is an intro level sketch class, pure and simple, geared towards the student who has never written sketch before, or even a writer who wants a refresher in the basics. Working off the idea that anyone can start writing sketch comedy, you'll learn the formulas that will let you start writing sketch now. You will not need to have pre-existing work to take this class — it will involve practical assignments in individual and team writing. By the end of class, you'll not only have a truckload of sketches, you'll also be prepared to strike out and write great sketch on your own. The class will culminate in a graduation show at The PIT for friends and family where your work will be read by professional comedians.
