Sketch 101 (Wednesdays 9/27-11/1 @6:30pm)

In the RISE Comedy sketch writing program, you will get the opportunity to learn how to write different styles of sketches, how to re-write and get notes back from your instructor to craft a well polished sketch. We will work on character sketches, premise based sketches, parody and more! This multi-session class will focus on a variety of sketches. You will learn how to write with others and you will also learn to write solo sketches. You will write in class and also turn in sketches for notes and you will learn how to re-write. You will read sketches and pitch them to the instructor and the class and we will all work together to make each to the sketches amazing and polished. It’s almost like being in a real sketch writing room.
