Sat Jun 17 2023 at 01:00 pm to 03:00 pm


Catalyst Creative Collective | Tucson, AZ

I’m your BFF, I’m your Best FRANK Forever, FRANK Powers and I am proud to say that I am the Artist-In-Residence for the month of June at Catalyst Creative Collective inside the Toot Toot Tucson Mall!
I am throwing a big unique event every single weekend focused on cartooning, comic art, and performing arts.
June 17th 1-3pm
You know what Sketch Comedy IS, right? It's Saturday Night Live, The Kids in the Hall, Mr. Show, MadTV, All That Key&Peele, and even The Muppet Show... it's making funny videos with friends!
In this Sketch Comedy Writing Class, you'll discover the art of creating hilarious and memorable sketches that leave audiences rolling in the aisles. Whether you're an aspiring comedian, a seasoned performer, or simply someone with a knack for humor, this class is designed to unlock your comedic potential and sharpen your writing skills.
Led by experienced comedy writers and Keep Tucson Sketchy performers, Allana Erickson-Lopez and Paige Carlson, this class will take you on a journey through the fundamentals of sketch comedy writing. From generating innovative ideas to crafting clever dialogue and developing memorable characters, you'll learn the techniques that make sketches shine. You'll explore various comedic styles and formats, satirical sketches, character-driven pieces, and more. Through constructive feedback and collaborative brainstorming, you'll refine your sketches and learn how to maximize their comedic impact.
This class isn't just about writing; it's about understanding the art of performance and translating your scripts into hilarious on-stage or on-screen moments. You'll gain insights into the dynamics of comedic acting, explore physical comedy techniques, and learn how to effectively communicate your vision to performers or directors.
Join Keep Tucson Sketchy and let your creativity run wild as we embark on a side-splitting adventure of sketch comedy writing!
7pm and 9pm!
I kicked things off by driving The Comic Bookmobile right inside the Tucson Mall and making it the new window display of Catalyst’s Creative Collective. I’m going to transform Buster, The Comic Bookmobile by drawing all over the bus and so it becomes a moving mural of comic style line art.
