Do you watch old episodes of SNL like it’s your job? Love Key and Peele and Monty Python? Dip your toes into the sketch comedy pool with a writing class at Killing My Lobster. Our classes are taught by Bay Area professional funny people and KML veteran writers and performers with years of experience. You’ll learn the fundamentals of sketch writing as well as techniques for developing your comedic voice. And you’ll probably have a good time. Whether you’re looking to work in sketch comedy professionally, or just expanding your comedic horizons, we’re here to help you make that happen.
Tuesdays, 7-9:30p September 2 - October 7, 2014
Taught by Elaine Gavin
Wednesdays, 7-9:30p September 24 – October 29, 2014
Taught by Griffin Taylor
Bay Area writers interested in writing for Killing My Lobster who already have experience with sketch comedy writing are encouraged to submit one completed sketch, 3 pages or less, which represents their writing style and sense of humor.
Writers we’re interested in will be contacted and given a workshop time on either Sunday, September 7th or the evening of Monday, September 8th, during which they will work in a writers room setting to create a new sketch.
This is not an avenue for writers with no sketch writing experience, but rather for those who feel they already have a solid understanding of the form.
Sketches should be submitted as PDF files and should be sent to email@example.com
Deadline to submit is August 31, 2014. Videos of sketches will not be accepted.
*All material submitted or generated throughout the writing workshop will remain the sole property of the writer and will not be used by Killing My Lobster
