Could This Be Your Big Break?
If you’ve ever dreamed of writing jokes and sketches for Late Night, here’s a fabulous opportunity to get yourself to be considered.
NBCUniversal is offering a workshop for writers to get involved. They posted the recent opportunity on their website.
The NBCUniversal Late Night Writers Workshop is a two-day program focused on exposing talented sketch and comedy writers to NBCUniversal’s late night line-up and readying them for a staff writer position. We are looking for writers who are “almost there” but need that final bit of preparation and exposure to key industry players. We particularly encourage female writers and those of diverse backgrounds to apply.
The two-day, NYC-based workshop will consist of improv classes as well as keynote speakers. The selected writers will create new sketch material and gain insight into the dynamics of a late night writers’ room as well as learn about NBCUniversal’s late night line-up. Participants are given the chance to interact with key writers and producers from across NBCUniversal’s late night shows as well as receive feedback on their material. Writing assignments on an NBCUniversal late night television show may be available after successful completion of the program but are not a guarantee.
So what are you waiting for? Go to their writers workshop website and get the details now!
