Learn the basics of Upright Citizens Brigade-style comedy writing to turn your funny anecdotes into sketches! If you have ever had something funny happen to you and thought “this would make a funny sketch,” this is the workshop for you. You will learn the components that make up a sketch, how to format sketches and, most importantly, how to turn your “this would make a funny sketch” moment into a tangible written piece. No preparation or previous writing/comedy experience necessary!
