Pens & Pencils is a sketch comedy jam with one purpose: To improve your writing.
Hosted by seasoned performers-writers Jonathan Braylock and Scott Swayze (Slap Fight), Pens & Pencils will allow you to have your sketches or character bits read aloud and eventually performed on stage. Bring any and all sketches (including video sketches) in any form. We are not here to judge -- we're here to help.
There will be constructive criticism, rewrites, talks and guest performers. We will even donate blood if it means getting you to write a better sketch.
Come join us. We'd love to have you.
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.
