In this course students will learn how to write sketch comedy for digital media, aka THE INTERWEBS.
We wll explore writing skills for the screen, developing comedic content for various digital platforms (Youtube vs Instagram vs short films), and ways to make your work stand out in a saturated industry.
By the end of the course students will understand how to write and format a short screenplay, adapt their comedic writing for motion picture, and learn how to share their comedic voices to digital audiences with uber-short attention spans. The course will culminate in a graduation performance featuring a live public reading of your digital sketch. This class is best suited for anyone who has already taken a sketch comedy writing class or playwriting/screenwriting class of sorts.
This class will be capped at 10 students.

Instructor: Suki Lanh
Suki Lanh is a graduate of Second City Chicago and the Peoples Improv Theater. She has taught courses in screenwriting and sketch comedy at University of Miami, Villain Theater, and Jeff Quintana Performing Arts. Suki got her BA in Theatre Arts at the 2nd most expensive school in Florida and her MFA in Film at the 1st most expensive school in Florida. She currently lives in an endless black hole of student loan debt that has been tastefully decorated to look like a bohemian chic French apothecary. Don’t feel sorry for her, she did this to herself. Before moving to Miami, Suki developed scripts for film, television, and theatre in London and NYC which means she would give notes on how to make these scripts better and then the writers would receive these notes and tell her why she was wrong (but end up taking her notes anyway). When Suki’s not writing funny stuff or teaching funny things, she’s busy making funny voices at her dog Lillian Coppola Van Chicken Wing.
