This three-part workshop focuses on writing sketch comedy for the small screen.  Part one:  Workshop your sketch.  We table read a pre-written sketch of yours and use elements of the "writers room" to give ideas for re-writes and punch-ups.  Part two: Pitch your ideas. In a group pitch meeting we build on your ideas for a future sketch and  explore what makes a good "pitch"  Part Three:  Take the note: A discussion about the elements of a good sketch packet and what it's like to work on a show.

PLEASE BRING: 1 sketch you feel comfortable workshopping and 2 sketch ideas
