COVID-19 Update: All performances have been suspended until further notice.  Workshops (in-session and upcoming) will be postponed on a rolling basis until we're able to offer them again. Feel free to book into any listed workshops that you're keen for – we'll keep pushing them back until we're able to hold them, and people with registrations on the books will get first crack at participating. It might take awhile, but we'll eventually be back to normal and would love to have you involved for a much-needed laugh.

Comedy Writing Sampler (Optional Trial Session)

Anyone is capable of developing relatable comedic ideas that are worth writing down and sharing—yes, even you! To prove it, we're offering a free session to help you get you acquainted with the basics of sketch comedy.

Are you interested in sketch comedy writing but aren't sure how to get started, or what's involved? Join us for a few hours of fun and learning, in this optional session designed to highlight some of the most important elements of our sketch writing program!

We'll watch some famous filmed sketches and break them down using the analytical techniques and terminology used by professional comedians. Next, we'll introduce you to a few brainstorming tools designed to generate comedic ideas on demand, without needing to wait for that perfect premise to come to you in your dreams. After a basic in-class writing exercise, you'll walk away from the session with a basic roadmap for how to continue with sketch comedy writing, whether you do so with us, or strike out on your own.

Expect lots of laughs in a low-pressure environment, with lots of like-minded people. There's absolutely no obligation to continue on to a paid class, but trust us, you'll probably want to!

Spaces are limited, so book now!

Once registered, please let us know ASAP if you won't be able to attend. Registrants who don't show up will forfeit their ability to participate in future free sessions. Limit one free sketch trial per person.
