My Online Sketch Comedy Courses
Updated: Sep 6, 2021
I run three great Writing TV & Online sketches that go by the names RED, GREEN and BLUE - plus a RADIO SKETCH COMEDY COURSE. Wondering what the thing is with these colour coded names? This video reveals all.
Hopefully that explains everything! Sorry it went over 3 minutes. These classes have been done by people all over the UK, Europe and internationally. (Classes start 7pm UK time). On the courses, you will be inspired to write lots of new sketches and you'll enhance your sketch writing skills. You might be writing for TV, YouTube, social media, radio or the stage. Each course has different examples sketches, techniques and inspiration.
Each week takes a different theme and in the Zoom sessions we watch, analyse and discuss a wide range of comedy sketches to uncover techniques and approaches. This is all a springboard to you writing your own brand new sketches. There'll are also creative exercises in the class to get your ideas flowing.
Each course also has a Trello board where there will be notes from the sessions, the homework and also videos of the classes so you can recap or catch up any you missed.
And here are the courses. Every class teaches the fundamentals and covers a range of other topics.
