During this two-week online course you will learn the fundamentals of sketch writing and be inspired to create your own. Whether you’re writing for TV, YouTube or social media, the approaches explored in this course can be applied across all media forms including radio and stage.

Using examples from Tracey Ullman, Smack the Pony, Fry and Laurie and more, you’ll encounter the ‘kicking up’ comedy technique, ‘unsaid said’ sketches, incongruous speech and many other techniques for creating memorable comedy moments. You’ll learn the basics of how to structure your sketches and the different ways of ending them.

This course takes place on Zoom and we will email you a joining link the day before. There will be an opportunity to ask tutor Chris Head questions throughout, as well as have conversations with your fellow participants in the virtual breakout rooms.
