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."

Schedule:

Saturday 2/24 Workshop: 10:00 am to 5:30 pm with a one-hour break for lunch

Sunday 2/25 Workshop (2-Day Students Only): 10:00 am to 5:30 pm with a one-hour break for lunch

DESCRIPTION

Join Kevin McDonald of the Kids in the Hall as he brings his sold out workshop back to SF Sketchfest for an incredible fifth year. Through this seven hour intensive, Kevin will teach a small group of actors how to write comedy through performance and use improv as a writing tool. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to write sketches through improv.The workshop will warm up with improv games to help sharpen storytelling skills, and evolve until students are doing their own improvised scenes in small groups. You will then take these improvised scenes, work on them and make them into full comedy sketches. Kevin will go from group to group, helping and guiding with the "writing" of each scene. Each group will then have the opportunity to present their sketch. After getting notes, revising and presenting the scenes again, the workshop will end with the groups going off and actually finalizing their scenes. The now fully written scenes will be performed one last time for everyone. This workshop will improve your acting and writing skills, and will teach you how both skills work in unison to create great scenes and hilarious comedy. And if prompted, Kevin will tell lots of stories about the Kids in the Hall.

Please note this is a two day event:
Day 1 is Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Day 2 is Sunday, January 28, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
