Comedy Arts

Log in to fully participate. A valid NetID is required

Students in the Comedy Arts Module will explore the field of comedy in fields of television, film, theatre, stand-up, prose, performance and sketch. Through the development of their comedic voice, characters, structure and timing, students will learn the traits of well-built comedy. By delving into comedy’s past and present while also looking toward the future of comedy, students will discover ways comedy can create a lasting and unique impact upon its audience. By adapting their own individual approaches toward comedy, the module will seek to enhance the students’ inherent “sense of humor” while also building confidence in the creation of specific comedic content.

Posts made to this module group can be viewed by the Northwestern community via NetID and industry advisory board members.
