Are you a comedy writer? Want to be? Come along to our monthly writing drop-ins to create, share and develop new comedy writing.
These laid-back Sunday afternoons are the perfect place to share sketches, comedy characters, and scenes from sitcoms and plays that you have created. The Sketch Shop is a supportive group environment where you can find a supportive network of creators. As well as trying out new ideas, we also look at classic scenes, talk about comedic techniques and collaborate to create work together.
This is a low-pressure setting where you can experiment with stage comedy and meet comedians and writers from around the East Midlands. No matter what your experience, you can jump right in. Whether you are looking to try something new with your writing, have one idea you can’t get out of your head or are aiming to write comedy professionally this is the place for you.
Each drop-in has plenty of time for people to showcase their ideas and get helpful feedback if they want it. Just bring along a script or idea. While we love all forms of comedy, these drop-ins are aimed specifically at supporting more alternative styles like sketch, character and narrative. If you are looking for opportunities to try stand-up comedy then we can recommend different places to you.
This is a writers’ drop in so you need something you can write with whether that is paper and pen, laptop or even just your phone’s note-taking app.
