Sketch comedy is scripted comedy, just like you see on TV shows like Saturday Night Live and Key & Peele. It all begins with the development of characters and the writing of scripts.  

Please visit our Student Resources page for more information about classes and enrollment.

Sketch 101 will teach students the basics of writing sketch comedy scripts and developing characters, as seen in television shows like SNL, MadTV, and Key and Peele. Students will learn Comedy Spot sketch theory and several methods of generating ideas with a clear focus. The class is a mix of video lecture, group discussion, script reading, and feedback. At the completion of this class, students will have finished sketches and characters to use in future.
