Eighth & Eight Creative Spaces (Massey Theatre facility) presents an 8-week after school program led by Ryan Leslie Fisher, a local LGBT comedian. It will focus on queer-themed sketch comedy, meaning every joke is a gay joke where the punchline isn’t being gay! Covering every step of the process from inspiration to script writing, the participants will develop their voice, and take a critical look at short form comedy that can be used on platforms like TikTok. Throughout the program we will be selecting a series of sketches written by the participants to present in a final showcase for friends, family, and invited audience.
For youth 12-18.
