Be sure you understand all of our conditions of participation before signing up.

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.
