Students will learn the fundamentals of improvisation – an unscripted theater art form – and ultimately use those tools to dip their toes into scripting comedic ideas as sketches. Sketch comedy, which features often unrelated comedic scenelets, can be seen in shows like Saturday Night LiveKey & Peele and I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson.

You do not need to be funny to take this class.
