Are you interested in sketch comedy writing but aren't sure how to get started, or what's involved? Join us for a free info session online. In this optional session designed to highlight some of the most important elements of our sketch writing program, you'll meet one of our sketch writing instructors or head of the sketch program who will outline what is involved in the course and answer any questions you might have!

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 equipped with some basic tools and beginners understanding to get you started with comedy writing that should set you up for our paid courses should you wish to participate in those. 

This is purely an info session and q&a. 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, registrants will receive a Zoom Link prior to the session. 

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.
