About This Activity

The GOAL of this class is a four-page, state-of-the-art talk show portfolio suitable for submission to both literary agents and TV producers alike--and to that end the student has complete access to all that The Comedy Lab and The iO Chicago has to offer, including the critique of his or her material in a one-on-one session with the instructor. 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); to critique, assess and rewrite a rough version into a final draft and develop a business plan (7th week) toward the goal of getting an agent, getting an assignment, and at last being happy! Should the student chose to continue studying with The Comedy Lab, various elements will be considered for the live stage show that’s part of the next class, the SNL Sketch Packet class.
