Intro to Sketch Comedy: This is the place to start if you have never written sketch comedy before, or have dabbled in the past. Over eight weeks, students will watch and discuss a variety of sketches, break down scripts to see what makes them work, then write and revise some of your own material. You will begin to develop an individual voice and comic sensibility. The class will conclude with established comedians performing a staged reading of students’ favorite sketches.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT MOLLY
"Molly is incredible! She has a great ability to critique and make suggestions without making anyone feel inadequate or lacking ability." -- "I loved Molly's enthusiasm for comedy. Her energy kept me going and she was always great at sandwiching compliments with criticism so I never felt discouraged from playing and being vulnerable." -- "The only negative thing about Molly's class was that it had to eventually come to an end!"
