Late Night Writers Room

Mondays, May 6th - June 3rd

7:00pm - 10:00pm


If you've ever wanted to be a writer for TV, or work on topical material including sketch, desk pieces, and monologue jokes this is a great introductory class. Collaborating with other writers is key to a career- each week you will be given in class assignments and you'll learn to write with others recreating a Writer's Room under John's guidance. There will be weekly homework assigments as well, so this is not a class to just "show up". This will be a very interactive class so there will be ample time for Q&A each session. 

In class you will cover:

  • Everything pertaining to late night TV including monologue and field pieces
  • Learning to collaborate with fellow writers
  • Instructor feedback on your joke writing assignments
  • Learning to write killer monologue & topical jokes
