About This Activity

TALK SHOW PORTFOLIOS, is an eight-week course that has as its goal a four- page, state-of-the-art talk show portfolio suitable for submission to literary agents, TV producers, and network executives–and to that end the student has complete access to all that The Comedy Lab and The iO Chicago has to offer. Here’s how it shakes out week-to-week: the student learns to write jokes based on the news (1st week); to expand those jokes into character and commentary monologues (2nd week); to pitch concepts for desk pieces (3rd week), remote ideas (5th week) and various segment ideas (6th week); to create two parody sketches (4th week); and to critique, assess and rewrite a rough version into a final draft (7th week); and to complete the writing and rewriting of a letter to a literary agent (8th week).
