In Sketch Writing Level 3, students will apply the sketch fundamentals from the previous levels toward some of the more advanced forms of sketch writing, and will then compose the sketches they write into a cohesive sketch show.

 

For the first four sessions, students will sharpen their individual comedic voice by tackling a series of challenging sketch writing assignments, covering such topics as satire, experimental sketch, and others. The final four sessions will be devoted to assembling these sketches into a sketch show with a distinctive comedic point of view – topics will include transitions, recurring sketches, and framing devices.
