The Comedy Writer’s Room | March 20 | Matt Prigge
About the class
Bring up to five pages of comedy material (a sketch, a character piece, pages from your pilot, feature, or stageplay, even an outline, a pitch, or a new idea!) and get clear, practical feedback on how to take your script to the next level. Collaborate in a comedy writer’s room facilitated by one of the PIT’s sketch writing teachers. Connect with other writers and find future collaborators. Perfect for beginners who are just getting started, and for experienced writers looking for a way to stay sharp and accomplish their writing goals. Laugh, have some fun, and improve your comedy writing from the comfort of your own home!
