What you'll learn in this comedy writing class:

Sketch comedy is the gateway drug to writing comedy!

In this 8-week course, you'll learn the fundamentals of writing comedy scenes, explore idea generation, and work to develop good writing discipline and habits. You will learn scene structure and editing techniques as well as explore writing in proper script formatting. While the writing will focus on sketch comedy writing techniques, the lessons are applicable to all forms of screenwriting. Sketch is a perfect compliment for improv actors wanting to improve their storytelling abilities and is a great way to further comedic ideas generated through improvisation.

Class will end with a staged reading, featuring a sketch written by each student.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

Comics say it’s the greatest high. You step into the light, take a swig of water, pick up the mic, then reduce a crowd of people to a mass of helpless laughter. Sure, the risks are great—silence, heckling, humiliation—but on a good night a stand-up feels richer than Seinfeld and Rock combined. You “kill” or “die” depending on your material....
