Bull Skit Comedy has been making Red Deerians laugh for the past 12 years. Now, the group wants to help hone other people’s comedy and writing skills.
Bull Skit is presenting two workshops next month “for anyone looking to get more connected, branch out, and try something new,” says Jenna Goldade, artistic director of Bull Skit’s Against the Wall Theatre.
Intro to Sketch Writing will be held on Sunday, Feb. 2, 9, 16 and 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Recreation Centre.
The new course will take participants through sketch structure, styles, tools, the pitching process and approaching first draft.
“This workshop is … for anyone looking to write. If you’re a stand-up comedian, a writer, a student, someone looking to try something new, then this is the perfect stepping stone,” said Goldade.
Instructors have trained at Second City (Toronto/Chicago) and Humber College’s comedy writing program.
Intro to Improv will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 11, 18 and 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. Instructor Dan Vasquez will focus on the basics of improv for building confidence and connecting with other people.
