Sketch 201: Developing Professional Tools

Hone your individual voice as a writer while collaborating in a writer's room setting


Developing Professional Tools for Writing

Sketch 201 at the Upright Citizens Brigade provides a more comprehensive approach to the art of sketch comedy. In this course, students delve into more advanced techniques, focusing on refining their comedic voice and mastering the essential elements of UCB's game-based comedy.

This class will hold students to weekly deadlines while offering opportunities to pitch ideas to others and collaborate with other students on assignments in class. By the end of the course, each student will have developed a 3-sketch packet of their strongest work, which they will receive 1:1 feedback on from their teacher.
