Kids and teens who take Comedy Uprising’s sketch workshop will learn how to craft characters, develop comedic game, and understand the basics of successful sketch comedy. They will enhance their vocabulary, creativity, expressiveness, and natural creative talents. Through collaboration in a safe, positive space, they will build their self-esteem as producers, writers, and performers.
