The Pack Core Sketch Program is helmed by Eric Moneypenny (The Eric Andre Show, Fox ADHD) and Sam Brown (The Whitest Kids ‘U Know). 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.

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!
