DC Improv Comedy School: Sketch Classes


Sketch comedy has produced some of the most iconic performers in the business -- shows like "Saturday Night Live," "In Living Color," "Kids in the Hall" and "Chappelle's Show" have become legendary. Sketch classes take you through the full process, from writing a sketch, refining it, figuring out how to put it on stage, and even performing it. The DC sketch troupe Bad Medicine provides our in-house instructors, and we also offer classes with out-of-town guests whenever we can.
