Sketch on Twitch :: Joan Ford & Cait Raft (Twitch Live-stream)
April 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$45
Twitch offers comedians a whole new way to reach a worldwide audience. But the platform can seem kind of limiting when it comes to sketch. How are you supposed to perform interesting, dynamic, funny sketches when all you’ve got to work with is your webcam and Zoom screen? In this class, you’ll learn how! In “Sketch on Twitch” we’ll show you how to create a live sketch show designed specifically for Twitch (or whatever other streaming platform you prefer)! The session will offer an overview of both the creative and technical aspects of live streaming; teaching you how to write sketches designed specifically for the medium and giving you the technical know-how to bring them to life in ways that will amaze and engage your online audience. Topics covered will include the software you need to get started, adapting stage sketches for Twitch and how to use programs like Photoshop to enhance your presentation.
Red and Yellow (Joan Ford and Cait Raft) is a two person sketch team! Both of the people are women! One always wears Red and the other always wears Yellow! That’s how they got their name! Their live sketch show, Red and Yellow: Two Dumb Fucking Bitches Do A Sketch Show, had a successful, year long run at the UCB theatre in LA that could only be stopped by a worldwide pandemic. Since then they’ve been performing extensively online, finding new and unique ways to bring sketch comedy to platforms like Twitch. As individual writers and performers you can see their credits on stuff like Netflix, HBO Max, Cartoon Network and more.
