In this class you'll learn about some of the different styles of sketch writing, from pen and paper to improvisational. We will also focus on building a strong character point of view, writing from your experiences, and the art of the double P's (pitch and premise). At the end of this class, you'll leave with a new set of tools to help you craft your own sketches! You'll be in great hands with actor-writer Derrick Johnson, the co-creator of Blackout Sketch Comedy and the Jason Kenny & Hinshaw digital shorts.
