What the Goodnights Sketch Academy Will Do for You:
- Develop original sketches for stage and/or film production
- Mold topics into creative script concepts using the guidelines of appropriate sketch framework
- Translate your ideas into funny, engaging scenes and dialogue through proper joke structure and editing techniques
- Five three-hour-long classes at Goodnights Comedy Club, Saturdays from 1 to 4PM with veteran sketch performers Steve Lesser and AJ Shraeder
- A Graduation showcase at Goodnights at 8 on the Wednesday immediately following the final class session (schedule permitting) in which your sketches will be table-read by local actors and comedians for an audience of friends and family in a supportive, positive, and controlled environment
