Sketch Writing Program

Through writing assignments and in-class discussions, students will develop and refine their comedic voice in a supportive, collaborative environment.


From Page to Stage

The Upright Citizens Brigade Sketch Writing program offers aspiring writers and comedians the opportunity to develop and refine their comedic voice.

Each week, students will complete writing assignments and share feedback in a collaborative, supportive environment, guided by expert instructors. Students will come away from the class having written a number of sketches, and with a clearer understanding of the hidden structures of sketch comedy.

This program culminates in Sketch 301, in which students write and produce an hour-long sketch comedy show.
