Learn The Kids in the Hall method of writing sketches through improv from Kevin McDonald!
Sea Tea Comedy Theater is proud to bring sketch comedy legend Kevin McDonald back to Hartford for a master class and a show!
This master class starts with the basics of sketch comedy and comedy writing, to games that lead to thinking naturally about writing & performing at the same time. Groups of students begin to improvise and Kevin's notes on those improvised scenes will lead to figuring out how the scenes could develop into fully developed comedy sketches.
By the end of the day on Saturday, Kevin and the students in this class will have written 4 to 7 completely new comedy sketches.
New For This Year: A Whole Second Day! Students will have option of choosing just the Satuday workshop, or Saturday ANDSunday! The sketches created by the 2-day students will appear in the Sunday night show, with each 2-day student appearing in at least one sketch.
An important note from Kevin: "I will probably also bore the students with Kids in the Hall anecdotes throughout. Sorry about that."
