Sketch Writing

With John Babcock

Get serious about being funny, and sign up for Sketchworks’ Intro to Sketch Comedy Writing class!

For the first time, this will be an in-person (AND virtual) class utilizing screen shares, webcams, and group video!

You’ll learn about different genres of sketch comedy, analyze comedy scripts and sketches based on the techniques learned, and acquire strategies to expand on ideas and turn them into scripts.

Each week you will:

   • Collaborate with other writers in a workshop environment
   • Write, read and discuss material to stoke your imagination
   • Work with an experienced sketch comedy writer
   • Realize your full writing potential

From new writers, unsure how to go about turning their thousand ideas into comedy, to practiced writers who just wants to grow or improve their craft, this class provides the opportunity to turn out funny, completed sketches.

Some students may even have the chance to write for Sketchworks’ stage productions and videos!
