Writing the Late Night Packet

Writing the Late Night Packet


You’ve long dreamt of writing for a late night show like The Tonight Show or Jimmy Kimmel Live. To make that happen, you’re going to have to write a submission packet or two…or dozens. As a head writer, I’ve read countless packets to find the few writers I’m hiring for a particular show. This 1-day intensive class will teach you what I wish writers knew when they submitted to shows and what I wish I knew when I was a younger writer. Topics include: How to format packets, how to translate your ideas into concise and funny pitches, how to write better monologue jokes, how to write better desk and field pieces, and how to conduct yourself in an interview once you get one.

Sunday, July 21st. 11:30am-5:30pm

Cost: $199

The class will be held in Manhattan. Exact location will be sent out closer to class.
