  • Kevin_McDonald_NOV_2016_slide_2

Kevin McDonald Sketch Workshop

$180.00

Improv –>  Sketch –>  Show

Kevin will start the day by talking about the basics of sketch comedy and comedy writing. He will then teach the students, The Kids in the Hall method of writing comedy sketches through improv. You’ll follow that by playing warm up games that lead you into thinking naturally about writing and performing at the same time. The class will then split into groups and each group will improvise a scene. After each scene you will talk about them, give notes and figure out how the scenes could develop into a whole sketch. Then when all the improvised scenes are done, each group and Kevin, work all day to turn every scene that was improvised, into a fully developed comedy sketch.  By the end of the day, the class will have 4 to 7 completely new sketches.  Kevin will probably also bore the students with Kids in the Hall anecdotes throughout the day. He apologize beforehand for that.

There is no prerequisite improv experience required, and all that’s needed is pen,  paper and a willingness to learn.  Following the workshop, the students will perform their own sketches that night as part of a special Kevin McDonald performance at 8pm!

Date: Saturday, November 12th

Time: 10:00am – 5:30pm
