This was said by a Mr Peter F. Drucker. I’m not sure where I heard it, probably saw it in an agenda from school or something. It rings true, though, does it not. I especially connected with it, being a very quiet person with too many thoughts buzzing around.

This class will simulate what a week as a writer for SNL is like, culminating in a live show at 11:30pm on Saturday night. The group will meet for the first time on Sunday, and on Monday have a pitch meeting with the “host” for the week. After the pitch meeting, the writers will go off and write their sketches. They are all due Wednesday at 10am. Wednesday afternoon there will be a read through of all the sketches with the guest host. That night, 12 sketches will be picked. On Thursday, the group will be divided in half and sketches will be rewritten at two tables all day. Friday, the sketches that have been picked will be rehearsed with our cast of performers and the guest host. Saturday, there will be a dress rehearsal of the show at 8:00pm and at 11:30pm on Saturday night, we go live.

Improv Comedy and The Practice of Law

This blog post was written by Tommy Galan, Director of Corporate Programming at The PIT as a guest post for the Continuing Education of the Bar-California.  It first appeared on September 23, 2011.

I have known and worked with Ali Farahnakian [owner/founder of The PIT] for eight years, most recently, here at Saturday Night Live. I find him to be a responsible and incredibly talented person.
