Join Matt Schmid and Jacquie Baker of The Incredible Shrinking Matt & Jacquie for a crash course in sketch comedy writing. This workshop will explain how to craft a clear, concise comedic premise and how, through group exercises and workshopping, to expand a premise into a full-blown sketch. Students will be shown examples from popular sketch comedy shows such as Key and Peele and Saturday Night Live to gain a richer understanding of the mechanics of comedy writing.

All experience levels are welcome.

Matthew Schmid and Jacquie Baker are both writers, performers, and teachers in Philadelphia, Pa. Matt and Jacquie perform together on the Philly Improv Theater sketch comedy house team The Flat Earth (San Francisco Sketchfest, Chicago Sketchfest, Toronto Sketchfest, Montreal Sketchfest) and as a duo in The Incredible Shrinking Matt & Jacquie (New York Comedy Festival, Toronto Sketchfest, Montreal Sketchfest). Matt and Jacquie helped develop a four level sketch writing curriculum at the Philly Improv Theater and have taught classes and workshops all over North America.
