One Line Premise Workshop with Kevin McDonald
January 22 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Kevin McDonald (Kids in the Hall, That ’70s Show, Lilo & Stitch) is excited to spend the weekend back at Stomping Ground, teaching students how to create original sketch comedy from a one-line premise!
In this four-hour workshop, students will come to class with a one-line premise for a comedy sketch, such as “What if a guy was $10 short of being a millionaire?” Kevin will work with each student to break down the premise and determine how they can write it as a comedic scene. After the workshop, students will have the option to go home and write a full sketch from their premise which Kevin will later read and provide written feedback.
Topics in this course include:
- Developing full sketches from simple, one-line premises
- Refining character and other storytelling elements in scenes
- F?eedback on your writing from a comedy legend!
