Sketch Comedy WorkshopFriday January 24, 2020
6:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Like to laugh, and make others laugh, too? Then you'll enjoy the Sketch Comedy Workshop, led by comedy writer Sandy McKnight. The laughs start in the writing process, coming up with funny concepts, characters, situations and punchlines. Then comes the 'make 'em laugh' part, as you put the sketches 'on their feet' and get to show off your acting chops. Some people will gravitate to the writing side, others may love to do the acting, and some will want to do it all. Whichever role you choose, you're bound to have fun. We'll also watch some classic sketches from shows like Saturday Night Live, Carol Burnett, and Ernie Kovacs for motivation and additional chuckles. For adults and older teens, grades 11-12; please register.
Sandy McKnight has been Head Writer for live variety show Saturday Night Liv (with Liv Cummins), and TV series 24 Minutes From Blandford, for the last 18 years. He's also written for VH1, TMI Hollywood, and New York City's Secret Theater. His new memoir, Kid69, is available at Amazon.com. He also runs a Youth Theater camp at HVCC, and his music can be heard on Spotify, YouTube, and on radio, including area station WEXT 97.7. He and his band have done concerts locally at The Egg, The Linda and Round Lake Auditorium.
