Comedy Sketch Writing

Enrol in Comedy Sketch Writing

Course Code: ARTS2428

From Monty Python to Kids in the Hall to Baroness Von Sketch, every generation loves sketch comedy. Taught by Dave Pearce (writer, George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, The Irrelevant Show), this is a nuts and bolts course on creating original sketch material for stage or screen. Learn how to mine your own life for material, how to generate a premise, and how to use classic sketch structure to milk every last laugh out of your idea. By the end of this five-week session, you will have created two 3-5 minute sketches of your very own. This course would be of interest to those pursuing a career in comedy sketch writing, or to those who would like to simply develop the confidence to develop their inner Kid in the Hall or Baroness Von Sketch.
