Topical Joke Writing with Caroline Clifford

2 Day Workshop (2 Classes)
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Do you ever watch The Daily Show, This Week Tonight, Mock the Week (etc) and think: “How do they come up with all those great jokes so quickly? They must all be comic geniuses or something!” Well, they’re not. They just use writing techniques to mine that week’s stories for the funnies, and I’m here to teach you how! This workshop will focus on analysing particular news stories for jokes.
In this workshop, students will learn some invaluable techniques as a group and then break off in to smaller groups with a chosen news story (or 2) each, and write jokes together.

This class will end with a “Weekend Update” Style performance where the students will present their jokes in the classic SNL style to each other, and any other invited friends.

This workshop is great for working comics who want to add some current events to their material, or anyone who’d like to learn learn topical joke writing in general.

Saturday & Sunday, August 25 & 26, 12pm-3pm
Duration: 6 hours

In association with Stand-Up School Berlin
