Sketch Writing Class

The UK's best course in comedy sketch writing. London's improv home and school, Learn to write sketch with the pros.  

The Sketch Class

with the Free Association and Television’s The Dawson Bros!

The Course

The Free Association, London’s best improvisational home and school, has teamed up with British Television’s best sketch writing team, the Dawson Brothers (That Mitchell and Webb Look, The Peter Serafinowicz Show, Walliams & Friend), in order to deliver the UK’s best course in comedy sketch writing. With a strict focus on sketch writing development, this 8 week syllabus – written in collaboration with the Dawson Brothers and rooted in the FA philosophy – is an effective, fun and active writing course geared towards helping improvisers, comedians, and the sketch-obsessed work out material, learn technique, and write, write, write!

What can you expect?

Classes are 3 hours long and centre on the principles of sketch writing. Classes will provide students with a litany of useful sketch skills and techniques used by professional sketch writers today including, but not limited to, premise generation, effective game play in sketch, the correct use of styles, forms and structures, group writing etiquette, current television sketch templates, and much, much more!

Plus, this class will actually get things done. In addition to learning these skills and techniques, The Sketch Class will force students (You!) to write, write, and write some more! Students will write during class, and in the weeks between class (That’s right! There’s homework!)

Much like a professional writer, you'll be held to deadlines!

The Outcome

Students will end the course with a professional quality sketch packet, punched and polished by our teachers and fellow students. Our trainers will personally provide feedback on your homework, and help to punch up your final submissions. You will also recieve feedback sessions with the course creator - Steve Dawson.

In addition to learning and writing, The Sketch class culminates in The FA Sketch Showcase – a show featuring the class’s best material, performed live by a cast of FA actors, in front of a live audience, and produced into a high quality podcast for ON-SOAP.COM

Graduates of the Sketch Course are able to submit sketches to try and join the FA Sketch team.
