About this Workshop

Improvisational actors and sketch comics are pros at receiving feedback. As a matter of fact, it’s a crucial part of the writing and planning process for an improv act.

Book coach, Amanda Polick, also trained at The Second City’s school of improvisation. In this workshop she breaks down how writers can learn from the sketch comic’s approach to receiving and processing feedback.

In this workshop she’ll cover:

  • How sketch writers use audience feedback to determine if their sketch is working
  • What the resistance for feedback can tell a writer about their story
  • Who a writer should get feedback from
  • What to do if readers “don’t get it”
