$10 Drop In Sketch Workshop w/ Eric Rutherford

Postby TexasImprovMassacre » April 1st, 2013, 10:31 am

This workshop will highlight some of the key aspects of what goes into the creation of good sketch comedy.

We will look at the whole spectrum of sketch making, from generating ideas and pitching scenes, to creating viable characters. We will discuss the use of improvisation to generate material, and the importance of a solid running order. We will also examine different styles: what makes them different and what makes them all fundamentally the same.

This will be an ongoing bimonthly drop-in workshop that will meet on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month from 6:30-8:30pm. It is open to anyone, from the sketch comedy beginner to the sketch pro, to the fan who just wants to learn a little more about the process.

The cost of the workshop is $10.
The workshop will be held at
the SPIDER HOUSE BALLROOM
(2906 Fruth St., Austin, TX 78705)

April 1st from 6:30-8:30pm
April 15th from 6:30-8:30pm
