SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: Introduction to UCB-Style Sketch Writing with Beth Appel 

Learn the basics of Upright Citizens Brigade-style sketch comedy writing (including core concepts, vocabulary, and simple formatting), with a focus on using "game" to turn your funny ideas into sketch ideas. Every student will leave with (at least) the first page of a brand new sketch. No preparation or previous writing/comedy experience necessary!

* You must be listed on the DCM website as a performer. For this course (And this course ONLY) that means in town or out of town. You don't have to have taken a UCB Class before (but you can still take it if you have taken courses with us). This course is open to anyone coming to DCM!
