This class is for KML Writing students who want to continue developing their comic voice, and adding to their comedic writing skill set. We'll get more specific about the types of sketches you're writing, and you'll participate in two workshops with KML actors putting your sketches on their feet so you can see how sketch comedy works away from the writing table.

The unique experience of having your work go from page to stage is integral to understanding how your words are processed by skilled actors seeing them for the first time.

As your session of Writing 2 comes to a close, KML actors will perform a staged reading of your sketches in a theater for you, your classmates, and your family and friends.

Students will also receive one free ticket to the current KML show.

Expect a supportive, encouraging, and hilarious atmosphere.

*This class is open only to writers who have completed Sketch Comedy Writing 1.

NOTE: Writing on your own and sharing your work is essential to our teaching process. You should expect to spend four hours per week writing outside of class. Your work will be read in class and you will receive constructive feedback on it in a safe and friendly way.

The fine print: KML cannot issue refunds for classes, but we can offer course credit to be applied to another class within 6 months of the dropped class. In order for course credit to be reapplied you must notify Killing My Lobster at least 7 days before the start of the class that you are dropping. Transferring course credit only applies to the same course. Killing My Lobster reserves the right to refuse admission to any class at our discretion.
