Essential Electives is a series of six unique workshops that will focus on a different topic each week, taught by OKC Improv instructors. You may enroll in all six for a major discount, or you may take one or more Essential Electives workshops for only $20 apiece!|
This is the place to start if you have never written sketch comedy before, or have dabbled in the past. Through written, group, and improv exercises, this class will teach you concrete skills that will help you become a better sketch comedy writer. You will learn techniques on how to develop your ideas, clarify your premise, create characters, and understand what makes a good sketch work.
We'll discuss a variety of sketch terms and formats, including blackout, musical, runner, commerical, parody - and emerging formats such as Vine. We'll also practice starting from an idea, script, suggestion, or an even an existing scene. Finally, we'll workshop your material onstage, concluding with our instructor team and students performing a staged reading of students' sketches. No experience required. Open to all.
Taught by OKC Improv Staff and experienced Sketch comedians, including Tim Huckeby, Kellen Hodgeson, Buck & Clint Vrazel, Sue Ellen Reiman.
