Tuesday, June 7, 2016 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

This is a workshop that focuses on creating polished scripts that are ready for production. Have you always wanted to start your own Youtube channel and create fresh content for it on a weekly basis, but haven’t gotten around to learning the basics to do so? Now is your chance to learn the tools necessary to write funny and engaging comedy sketches consistently. In this course we will learn to identify what makes a sketch funny through “game” and “heightening” as well as focus on the specific types of sketches that are used professionally on platforms such as SNL, Key & Peele and Funny or Die.
