Sketch 2: The Writers Room
(proof of vaccination required)
Prequisite: must have taken Sketch Level 01 at ColdTowne
In this 8-week class, you and your fellow writers will pitch your fresh sketch ideas and hold table reads of your drafts in a collaborative setting. This is a deeper dive into satire, parody, characters, and the absurd! You will finish this class with your completed sketch packet - an example portfolio of your sketch comedy writing. This class includes a reading / performance at the end of the eight weeks.
