How do we make sure what we’ve written comes across on stage? How do we write for others? These are just some of the concerns addressed in this advanced sketch course. Over 8 weeks you pitch your ideas and craft your sketches and also build them into a live sketch podcast. Building on the fundamentals in sketch 1, sketch 2 begins to look at sketches in sequence; building a show from ideas to whole sketches to a live, staged spectacle.
The ITS sketch program has been developed by Tonightly’s Wyatt Nixon-Lloyd and The Bear Pack‘s Carlo Ritchie and taught by Hughesy We Have A Problem head writer Penny Greenhalgh. 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 and Penny have a vast knowledge of sketch that’s seen them put on shows at all the major comedy festivals in Australia as well as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
