Baby Wants Candy: Creating Comedy for Television

In this course, led by critically acclaimed comedy writer Albert Samuels, students will participate in the in-process television pitch used by Samuels’ cutting-edge improvisation group, Baby Wants Candy, including finalizing concept and script and developing a strong pitch. Students will also work with and be mentored by guest artists and alumni Tommy Dewey and Scott Eckert and will develop their own original television concepts both in teams and individually, and also create shorter material – e.g., desk bits for late night shows, online content, etc.




Thursdays, 1:30-4:20 PM
