Hey everyone! I am so excited to have you on this sketch comedy journey! In this class I want you to be deliberate and intentional with your time. Which means I have an exercise that needs to be worked on before class starts.
Articulate your Truth
Make a list of everything that you're interested in writing about. It could be puppies, romantic relationships, even the most recent TV show that you've seen. This is an opportunity for you to be transparent with yourself and really get an idea of your unique point of view.
