2018 Term schedule
Sketch 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.
Sketch Level 1 - Introduction to Sketch Writing
Our introductory sketch comedy writing course is designed to give anyone the tools and theory to start writing sketches for the stage and screen in the American style made famous by The Second City and Upright Citizens Brigade Theatres.
Sketch Level 2 - Creating a Sketch Show
Let's get those sketches up on stage! In this class you'll work with your fellow students, the instructor and a director to create an completely original sketch comedy show at the Improv Conspiracy Theatre.
