WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.
Sketch Comedy Workshop with Evan Fleischer via Zoom
April 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$320.00
If you’re looking for a place to write comedic sketches, talk about sketches, and offer feedback to others to make their own sketches better — all while watching other sketches for inspiration — then this is the writing workshop for you. There is so much good comedy to explore — Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out, Hey Riddle Riddle, an underappreciated Netflix series, a Jamie Foxx stand-up special you haven’t seen in years, something ripped from an old Firesign Theatre record — it only makes sense that we explore and make it together.
No experience necessary. All ages welcome.
This class will be taught via Zoom. It will run on six consecutive Thursdays at 6:30pm Eastern time starting on April 6. The Zoom link will be sent 24hours before the class series begins. Please write to [email protected] with questions.
