Game On! Sketch Comedy Writing, Level 2
Shenanigans Comedy Theatre - Black Box - 2650 Leeman Ferry Road, Suite F, Huntsville, AL 35801
For ages 18+:Â Game On! Sketch Comedy Writing Level 2 -Â Have a great idea for a sketch but you're not sure what to do with it? In this session, we will discuss how to elevate a sketch concept to hilarious heights by embracing not just "Yes, and" but also "If, then" and what it means to incorporate "Game" into the work.Â
Students are asked to bring a basic drafted version of their sketch (3-5 pages) to class for a workshop session where we will collaborate to refine those ideas into a fleshed out sketch on the page.
Students should have completed the Level 1 class (So You Wanna Write Sketch Comedy) or have equivalent experience in understanding the components of sketch.
