Comedy Writing with Wendi Aarons Session Two - August 3-7
We were busy this week, learning about all types of humor and writing various jokes, sketches, advertisements, and puns. We talked a lot about parody and watched an SNL clip of “The Office in Japan.” The kids were focused, funny, and really keyed into what’s funny. - Wendi Aarons

Subaru’s New Motto
Isabella sat down on her couch to watch television. She turned on the television and started watching her favorite show. Suddenly, a commercial interrupted her show. Isabella wanted to scream and tear her hair out. It was getting to the good part! The commercial advertised Subaru. Isabella groused and grumbled and glared as the commercial went on. She expected them to say: “Subaru. We’re here for good”, but instead, they said: “Subaru. We are here for good and good only. If it gets bad, we’ll pack up and leave.”
The No Eyed Deer
Mason and Jack were walking through the forest, when suddenly, they came upon a deer with no eyes. “I wonder what you call that,” Jack wondered aloud. “No eyed deer,” Mason replied. And he really had no idea. The next day, they were walking through the forest again. Again, they saw a deer with no eyes, but this time, it didn’t have any legs either. “I wonder what you call that,” Jack wondered aloud. “Still. No eyed deer,” Mason said. And still, he really had no idea.

Parody of Bohemian Rhapsody
Mommaaa, I just wore jeans
It was 104 outside, I picked a leaf and it died
Mommaaa, I don’t want to fry
But now I made a friend and he’s really shy
Momma, woo oh oh oh
I don’t want to fry
I sometimes wish I never wore long sleeves
but my yaaaard is dead leaves
And nothing really matters, to me
