Course DescriptionIn this course, we'll explore what makes comedy work. We'll use in-class writing (singly or in teams) to create compelling character sketches, develop comic monologues, and draft outlines for full-length plays. You will identify the genre that best expresses your comedic gifts; learn to create engaging and relatable characters; acquire techniques behind dialogue that pops; and construct a well-crafted story, while picking up a few tricks of the trade to keep you generating ideas. Class limit: 12 students.
