In this fundamentals of sketch writing, you’ll build sketches from the ground up. Working each week through different genres of sketch comedy, you’ll pull sketches apart, critique your ideas and peer through the gears and right to the very heart of the sketch; the joke.
The ITS sketch program has been developed by Tonightly’s Wyatt Nixon-Lloyd and The Bear Pack‘s Carlo Ritchie and taught by the head writer of pretty much all comedy panel shows in Australia, like Hughesy We Have A Problem, Penny Greenhalgh and ITS Sketchy-At-Best‘s Dan Pavatich. The curriculum takes you through the different styles of sketch writing from Wyatt’s experience as the director and founder of ITS Sketchy-At-Best, his year writing for television, his lessons learned from The Second City, UCB and The Groundlings. Wyatt, Carlo, Penny and Dan have a vast knowledge of sketch that’s helped them write and perform shows at all the major comedy festivals in Australia as well as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and consistently for Australian television.
