ATELIER: Sketch Comedy writing with Peter Stevens
Bring your pen or laptop to write your own sketch (a short, comedic scene). This workshop is based on clear, practical advice so that you will leave this experience with something that you have created and love. Peter believes that advice should be concrete and quantifiable -so you can see exactly how your writing has improved. Peter is a teacher, improv instructor, and award-winning writer for sketch comedy troupe Elephant Empire and The Irrelevant Show on CBC Radio.
