The Pack Core Sketch Program is helmed by Eric Moneypenny (The Eric Andre Show, Fox ADHD) and Dwayne Colbert (Nickelodeon, FunnyOrDie and SyFy). It includes two levels of sketch writing, where students learn how to develop what they find funny, how to write faster, funnier sketches, and how to increase their ability and confidence to make sketch comedy that is awesome and original.

Classes meet for three hours once a week for eight weeks. Sketch Levels 1 – 2 lay the foundation for what we consider to be good sketch writing. All students must start at Level 1 and complete each level to be eligible for the next.


During the current Covid-19 pandemic The Pack Theater is unable to offer our normal classes which would meet at our theater and class spaces in Hollywood, CA.

So we are going ONLINE!

We will be utilizing the ZOOM platform.
Please download the Zoom meeting software to enable you to join the class, FREE at
You will be sent the meeting room code shortly before the class is scheduled to start.
As we are based in Los Angeles, all class times are PST.

Once you reserve your spot in class with a deposit, the remaining balance is due prior to the start of the first class. If you are in need of a payment plan or have any questions, feel free to contact Pack owner, Miles Stroth at [email protected]

Thanks and stay safe!

Sketch 2: A Bolder And Clearer You

Do you feel like your sketches could “pop” more? Well if you want to make bolder choices in your sketches to make them stand out from the rest, then take this 8-week session. Over the course of this class you’ll not only be given tools and exercises that will make all of your new sketches stand out, but we’ll also refine and polish existing material to make sure your comedic voice is being heard loud and clear. For the first class please bring in a sketch under 6 pages.
