Comedy Writing Level 1, Sundays @ 12:00pm (2023-4)

Sunday, July 30
Doors: 12pm // Show: 12pm
Curious about comedy writing? Study and learn about the different types of sketch comedy scenes, the basics of joke-telling, as well as brainstorming comedy ideas and how to use story-structure. Class will require a medium to light amount of homework each week, while giving students insights on how and why audiences laugh at sketch comedy. Class will also include a peek into comedy pilot writing techniques. Join veteran Hollywood writer Rich Talarico as he shares techniques from his 20+ years in late night TV (SNL, MADtv, Key & Peele, The Tonight Show) and from having written five resident company sketch comedy revues for Second City in Chicago.
