Are you in need of personal feedback on your sketches from a highly experienced instructor? Would you like to grow your work in a "writers room" type setting? This class is the perfect opportunity to touch up, punch up, or rewrite sketches based on both class feedback and professional notes. If you are prepping for a sketch show, putting together a new sketch packet for an agent or manager, or just aiming to become a better comedy writer, this class is for you!
$370/$340 early registration, 3.5 hours, 7 weeks
Prerequisites: Students must have some basic previous sketch writing experience. This class will make a great follow up to Second City Hollywood's "Sketch Writing for the Stage" class or an equivalent level of basic sketch writing training.
