Improv to Sketch Writing with Kevin McDonald
Oct. 7th, 10AM-5:30PM with an 8PM Show
Cost: $180 (+$5 processing fee)
ONLY 30 SPOTS AVAILABLE!
Join Kevin McDonald of the Kids in the Hall for a one day workshop to learn how to write sketches through improvisation - just like the Kids in the Hall used to do. But not only that! You will do a show that night with Kevin, in front of a real live audience, performing the sketches you wrote that day. Exciting? Kevin thinks so. Of course Kevin is very boring and thinks chairs are exciting.
Kevin will talk about the secrets of writing comedy sketches (hopefully their secrets and not lies) and teach you the Kids in the Hall process of coming up with an idea and turning it into a sketch through improvisational rehearsal. You will be performing and writing with Kevin supervising, all day. And that night, you put on a show.
During the workshop, he promises bathroom and lunch breaks and if you ask him, there's a good chance Kevin will tell stories about the Kids in the Hall. You might actually have to ask him to shut up telling stories about the Kids in the Hall. He's beside me now, telling stories about the Kids in the Hall. Shut up Kevin.
The Show will be Kevin doing stand-up. He promises to try his best -which will be Mitch Hedburg's 856th best. Which is still pretty good. Mitch was great. The show will also include the students performing their new sketches - and Kevin improvising with really good local improvisors… meaning if Kevin has an off night, we should be ok. Come watch!
