SKETCH COMEDY WRITING BOOTCAMP with KIDS IN THE HALL'S KEVIN McDONALD
1-DAY OPTION ($180) - Saturday, Jan. 13
Begin with the sketch comedy basics, then flesh out your ideas using the Kids In The Hall method of using improv to influence your writing. Learn to think naturally about writing and performing at the same time. Give and receive notes from your peers and figure out how to turn improvised scenes into sketches. By the end of the day, we'll have created 4-7 fully-formed sketches.
Students in Kevin McDonald's Saturday class will debut their sketches in an 8pm performance that night, alongside Kevin McDonald.
2-DAY OPTION ($250) - Saturday AND Sunday, Jan. 13-14
The 2-day option gives you an entire second day of writing with more personalized attention and critique, providing you with more material and advice for your future sketch writing. With a focus on turning one-line premises into scenes.
Classes are 10am-5:30/6:00pm, which will include 1 hour for lunch.
A note from the instructor: An understanding of the rules & basics of improv is encouraged, since that is the method by which we'll be devising our sketches. He also apologizes, in advance, for all the Kids In The Hall anecdotes he'll pepper throughout the day.
