Well... now's your chance to find out!

In this special one-day workshop, students will be introduced to the highly competitive - and hilarious! - world of scripted sketch comedy, including character creation, writing exercises, and writing in different sketch formats (parody, 'fish out of water', commercial, etc.). Discussion will include how to craft material that plays to your strengths both as a writer and performer, and where these skills can be carried forward in the professional comedy industry.
