This is a class on getting better at creating sketch comedy. The class focuses on developing your comedic voice by honing in on what makes you laugh to write with this in mind, and using constraints to your advantage to spur your unique creativity. Each week you will get to write and workshop new sketches. As a class project, we will collaborate on making one sketch video throughout the six weeks to learn the process of taking a sketch through every stage: premise generation, first draft, revisions, production, filming, and editing.
