We’ve got a couple killer workshops happening during the Sketch Festival this year!  Check out the workshop link above or check them out here:

 

WORKSHOPS

MURDERFIST: Sketch Comedy for The Devil


Teacher: MURDERFIST
Tuition: $75
Prerequisite: none
Dates: Sunday, Oct. 6, 2-5pm
Location: SIMPLE STUDIOS 

More info HERE.


The MURDERFIST sketch writing workshop will consist of an erotic and intimate look into our specific brainstorming, writing, table work, and revision process. Attendees are encouraged to come with as many ideas (i.e. one liners, funny ideas, nightmares, and sketch concepts). We never say, “Hey, that idea is stupid.” We just say, “That idea needs to be more stupid.”

 

The PIT Writer’s Room


Teacher: Joe Schiappa
Tuition: $75
Prerequisite: none
Dates: Oct 5th (One-Day Workshop) Saturday, 1pm-5pm
Location: SIMPLE STUDIOS
Class show: Sunday, October 6th at 8pm

More info HERE.


In this festival-edition of the PIT’s Writer’s Room Workshop, Joe Schiappa will lead the class in writing a sketch show that will be read by PIT performers in a staged reading at the festival the following night. This immersion in a writer’s room atmosphere will be valuable practice in getting great work produced quickly while working within a group. Joe will lead the class in exciting discussions that will form into fleshed-out sketches. After class, the sketches will be completed in time for the following night’s performance for friends and family. Come ready to write and produce!
