Monday 10/25 – Monday 11/29


In Sketch Writing Level 2: Building Your Packet, students will utilize the skills developed in “Sketch Writing Level 1” to write sketches in a series of classic formats. Mastering the modern sketch comedy standards –  commercial parodies, character pieces, topical sketches, and many more – is the primary goal of this class, as students will begin to fine-tune and hone their personal sketch comedy voice.


By the end of this class, students will have written five original sketches, and will be well on their way to having a polished, professional sketch writing packet.
