Sketch 201: Writer's Room

Completion of Sketch 101 within previous two years
Mondays 3-6pm
Start Date
Mon September 17, 2012, 3:00pm EDT

This class will help you foster your individual voice as a writer as you are held to weekly writing deadlines. This class will offer you opportunities to pitch ideas to others and collaborate with other students on assignments in class. You will also get to hone individual pieces through rewriting.

Students must bring a sketch to the FIRST session of class. This sketch should be no longer than four pages. This first sketch should be written utilizing the concept of the "Game of the Scene," taught in Sketch 101. Students should be prepared to devote time outside of class to completing new writing assignments for every session.

The class will end with each student receiving individual feedback from the instructor on their own sketch packet.

Students will be required to see two live sketch shows before the end of the course.

Class Size: 10 Students

Geoff Garlock, Teacher

Geoff Garlock is a writer/performer who has been studying/performing at UCB since 2002.

Geoff was a sketch writer on the UCBT Maude teams Neighbor Boy, Slow Burn, The Skuntz and one of the original UCB Maude Teams, iBadger. Geoff also wrote and performed in the horror based sketch show "I LAUGHED UNTIL I DIED"and co-wrote and starred in the show "Gettin' Quaid", both of which had successful runs at the UCB Theatre.

Geoff is also co-host of the fairly popular podcast "Worst Gig Ever" where he talks to comedians and musicians about all their terrible shows and lives....IT'S FUN!!!

When Geoff is not making the funny he is usually creating brutality in music form. Geoff Garlock played bass in the hardcore band Orchid and Vice Recording artists Panthers. He also played guitar in the metal band Dark Vibe and bass in the grindcore band The Year is One, and continues to alienate the world through music in the bands Ritual Mess and Low Estate.

When you lay out Geoff's life, it looks pretty good. Even though most days he feels like a glorified hobo
