Your sketch packet should consist of three elements:
- 1-2 pages of topical monologue jokes. If you think it helps us, please indicate which host’s voice you have in mind (can be, but does not have to be, an NBC host). Topical news jokes and pop culture jokes should make up the bulk of your material.
- 2-3 refillable late night desk bits. These can be ideas for elements like Jimmy Fallon’s “Thank You Notes,” pre-taped correspondent bits like, “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell,” or multimedia bits. For this portion, please provide descriptions of the bits with examples and not scripts.
- 2 SNL-style sketches that are 3-5 pages each. One sketch should introduce an original character and one sketch should be topical that can touch on recent news or pop culture phenomenon.
Additional questions (NOT APPLICATIONS) should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
