How to Create a Sketch Show with Kevin McDonald
March 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm$300
2 days – 10am to 6pm – Sat/Sun March 18/19 – Performance Sunday evening at Havana 730pm
National Comedy Treasure Kevin McDonald will share his insights to sketch comedy while guiding the group through the process of reading, giving notes, re-writing, rehearsing and staging YOUR* sketches! You will create and produce a sketch show in one weekend!
*Every student will bring one written sketch to class. Students will be expected to bring laptops and printed copies of their written sketches to the first class. (Enough for all parts to be read plus 2 extra copies for directions and Kevin. e.g., if the sketch has 3 parts to read, bring 5 copies.) All students will perform in at least one sketch. There will be a one hour break for lunch each day.
Comedian, actor, writer and director Kevin McDonald founded “The Kids in the Hall” with friend Dave Foley, after they met in Toronto at Second City, and the television series ran from 1988-1995. In the troupe’s television series and stage shows, he portrays several popular recurring characters, such as the King of Empty Promises, Sir Simon Milligan, and Jerry Sizzler. He went on to appear in a variety of films, television, and animated series.
Kevin’s new podcast, Kevin McDonald’s Kevin McDonald Show, is a live old-school variety hour that features famous friends, musical acts, new sketches, and uninhibited tomfoolery!Register Now
