What you'll learn in this comedy class:

You’ve worked hard to hone that super-fly pilot premise with hysterical characters, a compelling world, and an amazing pilot episode. So what’s next? 

A pitch meeting with a network exec, perhaps? Enter Natalie Gergely, Director of Development for Abominable Pictures and Former Manager of Development at Comedy Central and Nathan Varni, current Director Development, ABC. In this three week Los Angeles comedy pitching class, Natalie will take you through the pitch process, one step at a time. In the first session, you’ll cover pitch etiquette, laying the hook, performance, fielding questions and taking notes. In the second session, she will help you hone the pitch and give you detailed feedback in a private 1-on-1 meeting. The third session includes a visit from Nathan simulating a real pitch session with notes. The rest is history. Overall deal not included.


Prerequisite: You should have a pilot idea to pitch.


Bring a laptop if you have one and socks as we have a shoes off policy.
