Sketch Comedy Writing with Kevin Allison
SATURDAY 2/9 10AM - 1PM
Kevin Allison has been a regular on VH1's hit series Best Week Ever and was a writing and performing member of The State, the legendary sketch comedy group best known for The State on MTV, which The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Details called the funniest sketch show on the air. Recent film and TV appearances include Reno 911!: Miami, The Ten, The Next Girl I See and HBO's Flight of the Conchords.
Students include experienced sketch comedians and new writers. Students will learn about adding dimension to the comic premise, developing beats of action, fleshing out comic characters and playing with end twists. In this workshop, Kevin encourages a supportive and collaborative dynamic between students to help make one another’s material fresher and funnier, beat by beat.
