Kevin McDonald of the Kids in the Hall leads a one day workshop on how to write sketches through improvisation - just like the Kids in the Hall used to do!
Kevin will talk about the secrets of writing comedy sketches (hopefully they're secrets and not lies) and teach you the K.I.T.H. process of coming up with an idea and turning it into a sketch through improvisational rehearsal. You will be performing and writing, with Kevin supervising all day. And that night, you put on a show!
Exciting? Kevin thinks so. Of course Kevin is very boring and thinks chairs are exciting.
