Sketch Writing 101
Have you ever watched something funny on TV late on a Saturday Night and thought to yourself, “I wish I could write something like that”? Well think no more! Sketch 101 will give you all the tools you need on your journey to becoming a comedic writer. You will learn what the 5 Elements of Story are, the meaning of “C.R.O.W”, as well as tips and tricks to help you get a leg up on your sketch-writing dream.

Comedy & Performative Analysis
In this course, we will walk together through established examples of what’s considered funny and break them down intellectually. Students will learn what’s known as “the 6 Essential Elements of Comedy,” and put this new knowledge to practical use as they apply it to scenes and sketches in real time. Examples will be pulled from Saturday Night Live, Key and Peele, Netflix, and anywhere else comedy lives. All levels of experience are welcome; the only requirement is an open mind and a desire to learn. (Sense of humor optional).
