It All Starts with a Joke


Jokes are the atoms of humor. We'll show you how to write a great joke, and how to build on that process to make longer works if that's your thing. Our bedrock is the Five Bad Jokes a Day mentality, known to Scene Shop regulars as 5DJ.


Once you get the joke machine going, tackling a sketch is another great challenge. We have weekly live sketch writing streams, plus our patrons get access to a library of learning materials and deep discounts on sketch classes.

Comedy Web Series

Want to help write a comedic web series? We're working on a new series live on Twitch. If you've ever thought you might like to collaborate on a project like this, now's your chance. Come on by the Monday stream and join the fun.
