Classic Comedy Sketches

Classic Comedy Sketches, Level 2
Grades 7-12

“Make ’em laugh, make ’em laugh, Don’t you know everyone wants to laugh?” (Donald O’Connor – Singin in the Rain).  Come and join us for this outrageous adventure in comedy! In this class we will study what makes good comedy along with studying some of the the great comedians and classic comedic sketches of all time.  Then it’s our turn to try! We will choose some of the great classic comedy sketches and put on our own comedy show to be performed on our last day of classes. We also hope to take our show on the road to perform at a local senior facility.  Sketches may include scenes from (but not limited to) comedy shows like I Love Lucy, The Carol Burnett Show, Monty Python, or Saturday Night Live (don’t worry – only clean ones!); comedic duos like Laurel and Hardy or Abbott and Costello, and even some stand up comedians like Bill Cosby, or Christian comedians like Ken Davis, Tim Hawkins, Michael Jr. and Chonda Pierce.  Come join the fun, and “Make ‘em Laugh!”
