SNL Writers Room (Sat)

with Liz Cackowski


(At least 1 year's experience recommended)


Comedy writer and SNL alumni Liz Cackowski takes students through what a week at Saturday Night Live is like as a writer. From brainstorming to pitching to writing to read-through to notes and rewriting, students will get as much of the SNL experience as can be fit into three hours.

Students will need to submit an original SNL-style sketch prior to class to share and work on.

LIZ CACKOWSKI is a comedy writer and actress. After beginning her career performing at Boom Chicago in Amsterdam and The Second City in Chicago, she was hired as a writer for Saturday Night Live. After three seasons of SNL, Liz went on to write for several sitcoms including Community, The Last Man on Earth, and Girls 5 Eva. Along with fellow SNL alums Emily Spivey and Amy Poehler, she co-wrote and acted in Netflix’s Wine Country. Other on-screen acting credits include:  Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Speechless, and Neighbors 1 and 2.
