Join us for two consecutive Sundays in April (4/16-4/23) from 1:30-4:00pm for Big Blue Door’s long-awaited Sketch Comedy Writing Workshop! This is our first regular Sketch Comedy Writing Workshop since before the pandemic. Join us to delve into how comedy scenes are written! This is a workshop for current or potential comics, screenwriters, playwrights, fiction writers, videographers, filmmakers, directors, improvisers, actors—anyone interested in how comedy works in stand-alone sketches or in longer works. No writing experience necessary! We’ll look at how funny ideas are turned into different kinds of comic scenes, focusing especially on creating characters, brainstorming situations that best bring out their humor, and constructing the ‘beats’ that create rising energy and interest. Finally the course will touch on parodies and relationship-games.
Taught by Big Blue Door Co-Director Joel Jones.
