The purpose of this meetup is for comedy writers to: a) Get together and support each other on our projects; b) Get “unblocked” by practicing exercises that consistently and reliably create excellent comedy; c) Occasionally connect talented local comedy writers with talented local actors, actresses, directors and producers, and see what kinds of cool projects can emerge
Each meeting can consist of some combination of: • Writing together – easy, quick exercises to get the funny juices flowing
• Reading together – group or table reads of stuff you’ve worked on, along with feedback. A group is only as good as the feedback it gives, so we’ll have guidelines on how to give and receive good feedback. We may also periodically invite local actors, actresses, and directors to add some flavor to a table read.
• Supporting each other – writing comedy can be hard, and sometimes it’s good to just hang out with other writers. We’ll use a few great books for the exercises.
So if you’re funny and want to get funnier, or just want to hang with other funny people, join up. See you there.
