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
Class does not meet Jan 21 or Feb 18
Geoff Garlock, Teacher
Geoff is currently a sketch writer on the UCBT Maude team Slow Burn. Geoff was also a writer on the Maude teams The Skuntz and one of the original Maude Teams, iBadger. Geoff also wrote and performed in the horror based sketch show "I LAUGHED UNTIL I DIED" which had a succesful run at the UCB Theatre. Geoff is also a panelist on the montly music roundtable discussion show, Break Up Your Band, where he plays the part of old, cranky curmudgeon.
Geoff is also a member of the sketch duo Strachlock, along with Emily Strachan. Emily and Geoff were both writers on the Maude team Slow Burn and soon started writing writing sketch together, in order to harness their shared insanity. Soon enough they realized this insanity must be made into a full on nutzo fest of a show called "Gettin' Quaid" which is currently running at the UCB Theatre. Get ready world...get ready.
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 currently plays guitar in the metal band Dark Vibe and bass in the grindcore band The Year is One, continuing to alienate the world through music.
When you lay out Geoff's life, it looks pretty good. Even though most days he feels like a glorified hobo
