About This Activity

SNL SKETCH PACKETS, is an eight-week course that has as its goal an SNL sketch packet, comprised of at least eight separate sketches, suitable for submission to literary agents, TV producers, as well as SNL itself—and to that end the student has complete access to all that The Comedy Lab and The iO Chicago has to offer, including the performance of his or her material by The Comedy Lab Players (a rotating cast of 15 talented sketch actors), in The Chris Farley Cabaret. Here’s how the course shakes out week-to-week: the student learns to write jokes based on the news, as well as a cold opening sketch (1st week); those jokes are then expanded into two separate host-type monologues (2nd week); the student then creates a streamlined version of Weekend Update (3rd week); creates two commercial parody sketches and one digital short (4th week); writes for the live performance of a sketch that parodies an existing TV show, and a current film (5th week); writes a sketch that incorporates an existing character within the current ensemble (6th week); writes a cast scene comprised of five or more characters (7th week); and prepares for a live show, not to mention developing a business plan (8th week), toward the goal of getting an agent, etc…
