Advanced Sketch Comedy

Students will participate in exercises and complete take-home assignments to be workshopped in class in order to help hone their voice as a writer. Students will also collaborate with the instructor and other students to develop professional writing skills such as meeting regular deadlines, pitching ideas, and working with a group to create an ensemble. The class will explore more advanced scene analysis, the ideas of satire and parody, and comedy’s role in social criticism. Learn to add depth to characters, and explore other mediums beyond the stage (video, podcast, etc.). (8 Weeks. Prerequisite: Intro to Sketch)
