Writing Political/Topical Sketches

Students will practice applying UCB's game philosophy to sketches tackling topical subjects and/or political figures and events. Students will come into the class with pitches gathered from recent events or political figures. We'll beat out ideas off each pitch and the student will leave class with a one-pager and several ideas on the direction/ending of the sketch.

Pre-requisite: Completion of Sketch 101
