Students will lean on the skills they already have as confident improvisers to generate premises and build fully formed sketches. Each week, we’ll begin class with an exercise to discover new ways to generate sketch premises. Then, instead of going home and knocking our heads against the wall until an idea falls out, we’ll get on our feet, hone in on what’s funny, keep what we like and throw out the rest.

This is not a writer’s room style class. I’ll send you home with a few small assignments, but in class we’ll be performing not reading. You’ll leave this class with a dozen sketch premises and at least a couple fully formed sketches.
