Scheduled
Mondays and Fridays 6:30-9:30pm
Start Date
Mon November 19, 2012, 6:30pm EST
Price
$350.00

This course is an introduction to the UCB philosophy on sketch comedy, specifically using "the game" to write short comedic scenes. Each week students will engage in writing exercises that will explore different sketch formats. Students will be exposed to different methods for turning funny ideas into even funnier written sketches. Students will leave the class with an understanding of popular sketch formats and a portfolio of writing.

No prior sketch writing experience is necessary -- the only requirement for this class is a desire to write and learn. Students should have access to a computer and printer and be prepared to work outside of class, preparing sketches for presentation in every class. Students will be required to see two live sketch shows before the end of the course.

Class Size: 12 Students


This class meets twice a week sometimes, please make sure you will have time to complete homework assignments between sessions before enrolling.
