    Sketch Comedy Tool Box

    October 27-January 19

    Students will learn the fundamentals of character- and premise- based sketch comedy writing. We’ll learn about “game”, heightening, beats, reversals, buttons (not the ones on your shirt), contrast, archetype, genre, specificity, and “rules of the world.” Students will use these tools to create original work. And it will be HILARIOUS. We’ll also bring in our favorite funny things, and figure out what makes them tick. How do the fundamentals of sketch comedy apply to commercial writing? Playwrighting? Your favorite youtube video? Memes? (Yes. I said memes.) We’ll explore the many ways to approach sketch writing: on our feet through improv exercises, in pairs, and as a larger “writer’s room.” In working collaboratively, we’ll establish the vocabulary for supporting, questioning, deepening, and bouncing off of one another’s ideas– always throwing glitter, not shade. For the last class, we’ll have an informal performance of the students’ original “sketch show.”
