How do you take a really good improv scene and turn into a really good sketch? How do you take a really bad improv scene with a really good nugget of an idea into a really good sketch? How do you take 10 mediocre sketches and develop a really good show? By Listening, Collaborating, Killing the Baby, Following the Joke and Feeling the Beats, all while avoiding Screwing the Pooch.
Dave Buckman, director for Amesterdam’s Boom Chicago (1999-2002), The Second City (2002-2004) and ColdTowne Theater (2006-present) will boil down “the process” of improv-into-sketch show development into just one workshop. Dave has written and directed live sketch shows with many people who are either performing or writing for TV today including: John Lutz (30 Rock, SNL), Kay Cannon (30 Rock), Seth Meyers, (SNL), Jason Sudeikis (SNL), Joe Kelly (SNL, It’s Always Sunny…), Josh Meyers (MADtv, That 70’s show), Ike Barinholtz (MADtv), Nicole Parker (MADtv, Wicked), Jordan Peele (MADtv), Liz Cackowski (SNL, Community), Maribeth Monroe (According to Jim), Rebecca Drysdale (Big Gay Sketch Show) and many, many more. He has recently finished directing his 2nd revue for ColdTowne Theater: Shanty Town Lake.
